11th February 2024 – (Hong Kong) Hong Kong actor Donnie Yen, known for his powerful on-screen presence, has shown his compassionate side in recent years. Alongside his wife, Cissy Wang, Yen has actively engaged in charitable endeavours, giving back to society and spreading love. As the Lunar New Year approaches, Yen has been actively involved in volunteer work, demonstrating his commitment to making a positive impact.
Yen and Wang have undertaken various charitable initiatives, including distributing gift bags and essential supplies to hundreds of elderly individuals in the Sham Shui Po district. Their efforts have been aimed at providing warmth and care to those in need, especially during a time when weather conditions can be unpredictable. Reflecting on the establishment of their own charitable foundation, Yen revealed that it had always been a shared aspiration between him and his wife. While they initially funded the foundation themselves, their selflessness has attracted the support of generous donors.
In a recent act of kindness, Yen disguised himself and actively participated in volunteer work, personally assisting with tasks such as carrying heavy loads and distributing meals. His intention was to ensure that the focus remained on the act of giving rather than drawing attention to himself. Yen humbly expressed, “By wearing a mask and going incognito, people don’t recognize me, at most, they just find me familiar. Among the hundreds of elderly individuals we served, some faced mobility challenges. We took the initiative to place the supplies directly in their bags, and volunteers helped them with their movements. Witnessing the smiles on their faces was rewarding for both parties involved. Ultimately, it is the thought and kindness that matter the most.”
Looking ahead to the Year of the Dragon, Yen shared his excitement about upcoming projects in the film industry. He revealed that he will be dedicating his time to the filming of “Flash Point 2” starting around next month, leaving fans eager for what promises to be another remarkable performance. Yen acknowledged the significance of the first “Flash Point” movie, which was released 17 years ago and has become a reference point for many fans. He expressed his desire to continue the story and explore new breakthroughs, indicating that the film would undoubtedly exceed expectations.
