Heen Foh Lee Kwon


By Clifford Ng Kwet Chan


La société Heen Foh Lee Kwon
Située à la rue Dr Joseph Rivière , Port-Louis,
Vient de célébrer son 145ème anniversaire.
A cette occasion elle a fait paraître
Un magazine souvenir
Pour passer en revue
Ses innombrables contributions
Dans des domaines sociaux et culturels
Tels que l’éducation, le théâtre, la musique,
Le sport, le journalisme, le commerce.
Tout en publiant
Le CHINESE COMMERCIAL PAPER
Et le CHINA TIMES,
Deux quotidiens en langue chinoise,
Heen Foh Lee Kwon fonda au coeur de Chinatown
Une école mixte qui, à une certaine époque,
Comptait plus d’un millier d’élèves.
Envers la Chinese Middle School,
Mon alma mater de ma tendre enfance,
Où j’ai suivi des cours du soir,
Je serai éternellement reconnaissant.

An Appeal

Dear Reader

65 years ago Mauritius Times was founded with a resolve to fight for justice and fairness and the advancement of the public good. It has never deviated from this principle no matter how daunting the challenges and how costly the price it has had to pay at different times of our history.

With print journalism struggling to keep afloat due to falling advertising revenues and the wide availability of free sources of information, it is crucially important for the Mauritius Times to survive and prosper. We can only continue doing it with the support of our readers.

The best way you can support our efforts is to take a subscription or by making a recurring donation through a Standing Order to our non-profit Foundation.
Thank you.
