“The ability to be happy and how to cultivate that in our children, I think it’s so important for our future,” the award-winning singer said during a press conference at Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur.
“The moments when you’re happy in life are so precious. For me, I’m very happy because I know that I’m contributing to society and that feeling of contribution is very important to me.”
“I believed that a lot of people when they’re able to contribute to something bigger than themselves, it can be a great source of happiness,” he added.
This is not the first time the American-born Taiwanese becomes the ambassador of WVM. In 2012, Leehom was named as the 30-Hour Famine Ambassador during WVM’s 15th anniversary, where he set a personal goal to find sponsors for 3,000 children living in impoverished conditions.
World Vision has been around for 70 years and its main aim is to promote human transformation, seek justice for the oppressed and demonstrate the love of God for all peoples regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.
