A memorial fund for the lecturer who was stabbed to death outside his home has raised almost £6,000 - just three days after it was set up.
Dr Jeroen Ensink, 41, was attacked in Hilldrop Crescent, Holloway, on Tuesday, December 29.
It was just 10 days after he became a father with his wife, Nadja.
Dr Ensink was a senior lecturer in public health engineering at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, in Bloomsbury. He spent his career trying to improve access to water and sanitation in deprived countries.
At the request of Dr Ensink’s family, the school established the Jeroen Ensink Memorial Fund last Tuesday. It had raised £5,694.19 as of 10.30am this morning.
It will be used to support scholarships for students from sub-Saharan Africa and south Asia, where Dr Ensink - described by colleagues as a “natural educator” who would have students “in his pocket” when he spoke - focused most of his work.
The school said: “Jeroen will be hugely missed by all the staff and students who had the opportunity to know and work with him.
