Donnie Yen signs on as Rotary celebrity ambassador for polio eradication
Internationally renowned Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen has joined the growing roster of public figures and celebrities participating in Rotary’s “This Close” public awareness campaign for polio eradication.
Yen, Asian superstar who gained world fame with Ip Man, Wu Xia and many other classics, will help Rotary achieve its goal of a polio-free world by raising his thumb and forefinger in the “this close” gesture in the ad with the tagline “we’re this close to ending polio.”
“I decided to become a Rotary ambassador for polio eradication because polio kills or paralyzes young children and Rotary is committed to ending this terrible disease worldwide,” Yen said. “
I also learned that the world has never been so close to eradication of polio since the mid 80’s thanks to the vigorous efforts of Rotary International and its partners.”

DG Speech at launching ceremony of Rotary Octopus card
我謹代表國際扶輪3450地區全體社員衷心感激各位在一個星期六的下午，一個屬於休息和與家人、朋友共聚的下午，抽空出席由國際扶輪3450地區主辦的「扶輪顯愛心 – 齊來支持器官捐贈」嘅啟動禮。
今日，醫學雖然不斷進歩，但器官衰竭的病患者，並不能靠一般的醫療程序得以痊癒，他們只能靠藥物和機器嘅幫助，在痛苦中掙扎求存，與此同時，他們的家庭亦承受著沈重的心理壓力同經濟負担。在這種情況下，器官移植可能是他們的唯一希望, 為他們嘅未來, 帶來一線龧光。他們焦急地期待著善心人士在死後把器官捐出，使他們重獲新生。但根據國際組織的數字統計，香港雖然是一個富庶的社會、一個世界級的大都市，但在器官捐贈方面郤遠遠落後於歐美國家以至亞洲的國家。我相信, 我們對器官捐贈的意識相對薄弱，與及離世者的家人持反對意見有著莫大的關係，香港社會在器官捐贈的意識方面存在很大的進步空間。
