Doris Choi (Hong Kong)
Doris worked as a Project Manager in China, Hong Kong and SE Asia following graduation and after working in the corporate world for two decades, she decided to take a career break in August 2009.
Doris says. "In July 2009, while in Shanghai, I met Judy Chang who is a sponsor for one of the girls in the Liangshan. Judy introduced me to the work of the Josephine Charles Foundation and I went to visit Xichang in August 2009 to see for myself whether JCF is the right charity that I can deploy my expertise and help. After spending one week with the Foundation I decided to be a volunteer for JCF. I now know the true meaning of "How can I say NO and walk away"".
Doris is the JCF Coordinator in Hong Kong. She has been supporting the setup of JCF as a charity in Hong Kong as well as fund raising and leading a team of volunteers.
