Light up the lives of the less fortunate children

Children are pure as a piece of paper. However, with sophisticated family background, some children are living in despair and helplessness.

Chung Tsz Wan is a sales officer. He has started living in the Home since he was a baby. Without much resource, he has learnt to treasure what he possesses. Being a positive person, he always reminds himself “Not to be served, but to serve”.

Whenever he meets difficulties, he will not complain. He wants to share with people about his optimism, encouraging them to live enthusiastically.
Chung is one of the winners of Good Living Award organized by the Home in 2005. In the sharing session, he fully expressed his gratitude to the Home for giving 18 years of loving care and concern to him.

“The profoundest experience in my life happened when I was 18 years old and had to leave St. Christopher's Home.” Chung said. As he has been living in the Home since he was a baby, he had no idea about the world outside. “At that time, I knew only Taipo. I even did not know where Kowloon was.”

In recent years, Chung has well equipped himself to be valuable. When he was 18 years old, he initiated to find his father, repairing their relationship.
Chung encouraged children of the Home to treasure whatever they have and to equip themselves while they are still in the Home. In addition, he used his motto “Not to be served, but to serve” to remind us. No matter we are in favourable circumstances or in time of adversity, we should keep the helping heart and face our lives positively.
