For the children

For the children
FOR Taiwanese heartthrob Jerry Yan, artistes serve a greater need apart from entertaining, and that is to help others.
“We are always busy with concerts, filming and various promotional activities, there doesn’t seem to be time to help those who need our help. But it is important that we do our part.” said Yan at the World Vision press conference recently.
Yan was in Kuala Lumpur as part of his Asian tour of World Vision countries to promote the organisation’s International Child Sponsorship Programme. His next stops will include Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong and the Philippines.
The 29-year-old signed on as World Vision’s first Asia Child Sponsorship Ambassador in October. As ambassador, he represents 10 World Vision Asian offices, namely Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, the Philippines, Thailand, Taiwan and Singapore.
Yan said that he had long wanted to work with World Vision but was unable to because of his packed schedule.
One of his first duties as ambassador was to visit some children in Mongolia.
“In my seven days there, I saw many children who needed help and care, and I realised that child sponsorship was an effective way for us to help them,” said Yan, who sponsors three World Vision children himself.
“If I can realise just one of their dreams, it would be to provide them access to education. I believe that education will help them in the long run to escape the cycle of poverty.”– By Li Ee Kee
