Voices from Volunteers


General Secretary - Ms. Rebecca Leung

Giving my 5 loaves and 2 fish


In November 2013, Agnes told me that she would set up the Love'n Care Campaign" in China to care for the tens of millions of left-behind children, I was extremely excited at that moment since it was a hard-won opportunity to be part of the team to start the campaign. I have thus witnessed the establishment of Love Foundation and have been assisting voluntarily in its operation for 6 years.


My profession is a chartered secretary, I often help my clients in setting up companies, handling corporate management works, but I do not have a lot of experience in the actual operation of a charitable organization. Thanks God! When I took up the challenges by faith, God had given me wisdom, strength and energy to complete each task. Even though I was physically tired, my heart was filled with joy and happiness. I also thank Agnes for always trusting me and giving me a lot of learning opportunities. I have seen in her what is meant by selfless giving. In order to drive this huge campaign, she has not only contributed money, but also endless actions and efforts from her heart. It is not easy at all to carry out the mission with direction and persistence and to lead the Foundation to move forward.


Besides, I am thankful to God for sending a group of volunteers who are willing to commit, having different talents individually and are ready to use their strengths in different aspects. They become the faithful and firm force-the core team of the Foundation. We have walked through the past 6 years together through storm and stress and have become close comrades! When all of us put out our five loaves and two fish for use by God, we really saw miracles, achieving tasks men consider impossible! This year, another miracle happens. God leads us to start our service at schools in mainland and Hong Kong. We really need more volunteers, capital and resources to bring this huge campaign to a success. It is my hope that you can join in to contribute your five loaves and two fish, bless others, and experience the joy and the miracles throughout.

施比受更為有福


2013年11月麗萍對我說她要開展「中國留守兒童工程」,去關愛六千萬的「留守兒童」。當時,我真的覺得很震撼,能夠有份參與為國家出一分力實在是難得的機會,於是我見証了「愛基金」的成立,並一直以義工身份協助整體的運作。


我們的團隊大部份都是娘子軍,而且很多都是不用工作,過著優閒生活的太太,包括我們的主席也是如此。起初我也曾懷疑她們的辦事能力,但從共事中才發現她們潛能無限,並且願意離開自己的安舒區跑到中國農村,放下身段,以百倍的努力投入「愛基金」的工作,今天她們已不再一樣,每位都是充滿自信的領袖,實在令人敬佩。團隊的每一位都是我學習的好榜樣,也是我的動力。


我的專業工作是公司秘書,經常替客人成立公司、處理有關公司管治的工作,但對真正運作一個慈善機構的經驗卻不多。感謝神!當我願意憑信心接受挑戰,邊學邊做時,神便加添我的聰明智慧、能力和體力去完成「愛基金」的每項工作。我也非常感謝麗萍一直對我的信任,給我很多學習和與她共事的機會。在她身上我看見什麼是無私的負出,要成就這個龐大的工程,她不但負出金錢,也要負上無窮的心力、體力,還要帶著使命,方向,堅持,帶領著整個「愛基金」團隊往前走,真的殊不簡單。感恩我們整個團隊都是彼此同心,目標方向一致,以至在短短三年間,我們真的看見奇蹟,成就了一些在人看為不可能的事。「愛基金」的「中國留守兒童工程」每年都以倍數增長發展,看見數以十萬計的孩子受惠實在令人鼓舞。縱然我們的工作量越趨沉重,真的日以繼夜,夜以繼日地做,但每當想起還有數千萬的「留守兒童」等著我們去關愛,這些負出又算得是什麼呢?


「施比受更為有福」,我們實在需要更多的人材、資金和資源去成就這個龐大的工程,盼望你也能參與其中,獻出你的五餅二魚,成為別人的祝福,並經歷過中的喜樂和奇蹟。
