Ivan volunteered when his 10-year-old brother Shek Man-hin, who had leukaemia and gave up a dream holiday to Japan offered by MAWF to launch a fund-raising campaign for poor mainland children, died in 2002. 'I saw people helping my brother wholeheartedly and I asked myself whether I should give something back to the society. 'Before my brother fell ill, I only thought about playing video games and football after school and rarely thought about the meaning of life. But now I think the meaning of life is to do your utmost to help unfortunate people. 'I still miss my brother, but I do not feel unhappy. His outlook was to live every day happily, and that's a principle I share with him. 'Sometimes I ask my friends to take part in MAWF volunteer activities. We helped organise a party for a 14-year-old girl with cancer who wanted to sing with Miriam Yeung. We decorated the venue and arranged the seats and songs. 'I like helping out at charity sales most. We can help more children if we can raise more money. 'Although we can consider ourselves lucky living in Hong Kong, there are still many unfortunate people here.'
