Death of a Christian Volunteer in Inner Mongolia

Mr. Roy To Sze-chung was the young man killed in a car crash on Tuesday in Inner Mongolia. I found out later he was a Christian and he was on a voluntary service mission for World Emergency Relief Hong Kong.

World Emergency Relief is a non-denominational Christian charity. They try to bring help to hurting people, especially children. They are working in places such as Inner Mongolia, Philippines, Burma, and Sri Lanka.

Mr. To lived a short but colorful life - he was only 25. He studied civil and structural engineering and worked as an insurance agent. He wanted to change the world. He wanted to make a lot of money and donate a lot of it to charity. He participated actively in volunteer work, and recruited some of his friends to join the service that helps fund the education of 150 Mongolian children.

He is an admirable young man. The world would be a better place if there are more people like him.
