On the afternoon of March 23, with the theme “Being Grateful to Alma Mater and Combating the Pandemic Together”, an activity of donating epidemic prevention materials and providing free haircut service initiated by a Beihang alumnus was held at Beihang University.

Wang Peng, an alumnus of Beihang University, shared his spiritual journey during the activity. Although having left Beihang for ten years, he is always concerned about the development of his alma mater and is poised to make his own contributions. Considering the current situation that some logistical personnel were so busy in the epidemic prevention and control work that they were unable to leave the campus to have a haircut, he immediately invited four first-class barbers in Beijing to provide free haircuts for them. Besides, he also donated 3,000 surgical masks and 1,000 bottles of portable alcohol for the rear-service personnel of Beihang University. “Great distance cannot separate us. I will come back to Beihang at any time when needed,” said Wang Peng.

Xiao Hong, Party Secretary of the Logistics Department, expressed his gratitude to Wang Peng’s donation and said that, “Wang Peng passed on warmth and great love with actual actions. Such kind of love and responsibility will warm the whole Beihang University.” Wang Youhong, Director of the Alumni Affairs and Development Office, presented a souvenir to Wang Peng as a present.

The donated materials have been transferred to the Group of Logistics Materials Control and Coordination for unified deployment according to the actual situation of each department and school.
