The stories of the volunteering works of 38 Cathay Pacific Airways employees are told in a book entitled Flying High with 38 Hearts of Gold. Many of the 38 were at the book's launch at Cosmos Books, Wan Chai, on Wednesday.
Dennis Owen, from Cathay North America marketing, told of the orphans he and his wife saw in Vietnam when they adopted 10 years ago. 'I remember walking around the orphanage ... and wondered about the ones that wouldn't be adopted.' He has been a volunteer in Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia and China. Flight attendant Lilian Chan, who worked at mainland orphanages, said the book was 'about spreading the spirit of volunteering'.
