BRUNEIAN superstar and Fitness Zone Managing Director Wu Chun, along with staff from the health club, brought smiles to two underprivileged individuals yesterday by bringing them donations of household items.

Having been referred to the individuals through word of mouth, the group first visited Kg Kapok to meet with Hamidah Abd Hamid, who lives with her daughter in a dilapidated house with a leaky roof. They presented Hamidah with basic household necessities such as rice, dry foods and canned goods, as well as a sofa.

Wu Chun also brought contractors along, to assess what damages can be fixed in the house, and stated his plans on returning in the next few days to change the roof and repaint the house.

Next, they visited 74-year-old Tunong Untong, who currently lives with her niece’s family in Kg Meragang. Tunong is an elderly spinster who lived alone until her niece took her in four years ago. She also received household necessities from the group.

Wu Chun explained that the acts of charity carried out yesterday was a very personal mission for him. “The reasons for my doing the charity today is because it is the 11th anniversary of my mother’s passing tomorrow,” said Chun.

“My mother gave her best to make sure we had a great home and that’s the reason why I want to help brighten up the homes of these underprivileged individuals, as well as to promote a habit of helping others.”

Chun mentioned that he was influenced to do charity work by his late mother from a young age. “She was an extremely good role model to me in many ways, especially in reaching out to others whenever we could.”

She fully embodied the statement, ‘actions speak louder than words’, throughout her lifetime.”

“As a result, I was raised with clear awareness that I should always be grateful for all things in life and to actively help others.”
