Ryan appeared in a video shared by WFP on Facebook last April, explaining his work in Kutupalong refugee camp near Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, to create safe grounds for Rohingya refugees ahead of monsoon season, according to CNN.

China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that two of its six nationals who died in the crash worked for the UN, including one Hong Kong resident.

Tsang Shing-ngai Victor worked in the UN office in Kenya promoting environmental protection and sustainable development, according to his alma mater, the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Although he lived overseas, he shared his views on sustainable development as a guest lecturer at the school, “He hoped to increase the level of concern for the environment and create a better future for the next generation.

Mr. Tsang’s enthusiasm for promoting sustainable development was truly admirable,” the university said in a statement.

Kenya had the largest share of victims, including Cedric Asiavugwa, a third-year law student at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, who was passionate about helping refugees and volunteered with the Red Cross in his free time.

Born and raised in Mombasa on the country’s east coast, he was on his way home to Nairobi after the death of his fiancée’s mother, according to the university.
