|Wu Chun personally donates fund to Japan's Ambassy in Brunei|
Bandar Seri Begawan - To further boost the charity drive for the Humanitarian Fund for the victims of Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami, Brunei's very own Wu Chun, the famous actor and singer in Asia, has come forward to contribute his time and efforts to help raise funds.
From today until April 5, all of Wu Chun's Fitness Zone branches will have a number of donation boxes for the Humanitarian Fund for the victims of Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami.
Wu Chun in an interview said, "The donation boxes are not only for members but are also for the public to donate. Anyone who donates $100 or more will be presented with a certificate of appreciation from Fitness Zone.
"We now have a special offer of $60 monthly fee for new members and all the proceeds will be handed to the fund to further help the victims who have lost their homes and are also currently without proper food and water.
"This is a good cause and at the same time, members can also keep fit. I am proud of all my Fitness Zone members and fans for their contributions."
He added, "Actually, I was to go to Japan this Friday for a film screening and 'meet the fan' session. However, after the disaster, I postponed the trip. I felt that my task now is to try and help the people in need. I am really happy to be able to work with the Japanese Embassy."
He also disclosed that many of his fans around the world have contacted the Fitness Zone to donate.
When asked about his Japanese fans' well-being, Wu Chun said, "Information from the fan club website said that none of my fans were affected because many of them are residing in Osaka and Tokyo. However, the fans also have relatives and friends who are affected. Personally, I am saddened by the tragedy."
Almost in tears, Wu Chun also conveyed his words of encouragement to the victims of the Japanese tsunami and earthquake by saying, "We are all brothers and sisters. Everyone around the world is now supportive of Japan and its people. Please stay strong!"
He added that he had always kept up to date on the development of the disaster and was touched by the victims' strong will.
Influenced by his mother to be involved in charity, Wu Chun was involved in a charity drive for victims of China's earthquake last year. He held a similar charity drive to raise money for the victims of the earthquake.
Wu Chun also took the opportunity to sign the condolence book for the victims of the earthquake and tsunami.
Wu Chun wrote, "Life is so delicate, watching the destruction makes all the little things in life don't matter anymore when people around the world are losing their homes, their loved ones and their lives. Please... no more disaster, no more wars! Let us all unite and stand together! Please stay strong as we are with you."
