Hong Kong singer Sammi Cheng spent several days handing out food and other daily necessities to the needy in the city amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
China Press, quoting Cheng in her Instagram posting, reported that she spent one day each week in February, tagging along with workers of a welfare organisation on their trips.
"I've learnt so much by volunteering."
"I found out that many people have lost their jobs because of the virus outbreak," she said.
Cheng, 47, said she saw many Hong Kong people living in cramped spaces and that the unemployed were having trouble putting food on the table for their families.
She described it as an eye-opening experience and that it was an invaluable lesson for her.
"In life, we must learn throughout our lives, " she said.
