Eng Family Benevolent Association, also referred to as Eng Suey Sun Association (Chinese: 伍胥山公所; pinyin: Wǔxūshān Gōngsuǒ; Jyutping: Ng5seoi1saan1 Gung1so2), was founded by members of the Wu (伍) clan, who emigrated from China to various parts of the world while seeking out a better life (References 1). Note that the Chinese surname 伍 is transliterated to a number of forms. Examples are: Wu, Ng, Eng, Ing, or Ang.

Eng Family Associations around the world are often named in honor of the common ancestor of the Wu Clan from Suzhou China, Wu Zixu (伍子胥), referring to a shrine erected for him on a mountain, 胥山, with Cantonese transliteration, Eng Suey Sun (Reference 2). Today, there are a number of Eng Family Benevolent Associations or fraternal societies all over the world. They are located in Taishan Guangdong and Hong Kong, People's Republic of China; Jakarta and Medan, Indonesia; Kuala Lumpur and Penang, Malaysia; Yangon, Myanmar; Manila, Philippines; Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver, Canada; and Taipei, Taiwan.

In the United States, the National Eng Family Benevolent Association has its business office at 53 Waverly Place, San Francisco, California, 94108.
