22 May – Taiwanese actress-producer Ruby Lin recently flew to Zambia on behalf of World Vision's Sponsor-A-Child programme to meet with her sponsored child, Elidah.
As reported on Epoch Times, the actress, who has been involved with the sponsorship programme since 2004, shared that she is excited about the opportunity to visit one of her sponsored children, saying that it is a dream come true for her.
Aside from Elidah, Ruby is presently funding two other children from Cambodia and Honduras.
"Each year, I receive reports and cards detailing the growth of my sponsored children. Seeing the hand-drawn cards always makes me feel that my little donation can change the lives of children. It made me feel that such a programme is very valuable," she said.
However, the actress revealed that this is not the first trip to Africa for her.
"I had a photo-shoot in Africa before, but I didn't get to see a lot because it was in a rush. I hope to experience much more in Zambia this time," she said.
Prior to her latest sponsorship, Ruby had funded the education of several other children including those from Congo and Vietnam.
