Liza Wang Is Helping To Distribute Funds To Cantonese Opera Performers Affected By COVID-19 Pandemic
Hongkong veteran star Liza Wang has been giving back to society since forever.
Not only has she helped charities raise awareness and funds for cancer patients (she's a two-time cancer survivor herself) over the years, the 72-year-old also aided COVID-19 relief efforts by donating boxes of anti-pandemic supplies to frontline staff and temples in the past few months.
Now, Liza's helping Cantonese opera performers whose livelihoods have been affected by COVID-19.
On April 17, Liza uploaded a pic of herself in her office at the Chinese Artist Association of Hongkong. She was seen behind a desk piled with documents, presumably signing cheques to distribute to affected performers.
It's said that they will be receiving funds from the HK$150mil (S$27mil) provided by the Hongkong government to help keep the arts sector afloat.
"[I] hope to distribute it to the affected Cantonese opera performers as soon as possible," Liza wrote on IG.
The TVB Ah Jie was once a Cantonese opera actress and she still remains very active in the community. It was within the Cantonese opera community that Liza met her second husband, actor Law Kar-ying and she is currently the Chairman of the Chinese Artist Association of Hongkong.
Netizens were touched by Liza’s dedication to those involved with the craft and left her encouraging messages on her social media.
"Go for it, sister Liza!” one fans wrote. “Don’t forget to take care of yourself! Thank you for everything you’ve done for the people of Hongkong!”
