As the “goodwill star” Idy Chan along with others attended RTHK’s 10-year anniversary “Thousands of Love”, the program with responsive activities and rehabilitative care for prisoners. She and Ivana Wong officiated the ceremony.
Idy said that she doesn’t get paid for the work because it’s more important to bring out the messages to the public. She shared “I’ve been shooting HK Stories, no fees, just given travel expenses, but I’m really happy with the work. The program is very truthful for half hour, and usually just needs 3 days to film. There’s no other stations can afford such limited resources.” Also, she doesn’t mind for being in only 1 or 2 lenses of each episode, and even treats the staff. “Though the work is very meaningful” she said. After the function, she will visit the Detention Center for adolescent girls, and hopes to gain experience by interviewing them.
