Please see below video about Genlin’s charity work:
Over the past 20 or so years, Genlin has donated and contributed over 10 billion Hong Kong Dollars (around USD 13 million). During recent years, Genlin thinks that human beings should conserve the environment and treat animals better. When he found out that Asian countries have the corrupted customs of dog meat consumption, he was distraught, since Genlin treats dogs as family members and his soul mate.
To counteract and change this cruel habit, Genlin set up “World Dog Alliance” in 2014, its goal is to prompt Asian governments to pass “clear legislation banning dog meat consumption”. As of today, to push towards its goal, “World Dog Alliance” has organized a variety of promotional events, given out “Dog Lovers’ Award”, donating animal hospitals, and self-funded the production of documentary “Victory Cry”, revealing the truth about the stealing and torturing of dogs in Asian countries, and the dark side of the Asian dog meat chain, with the hopes of raising the awareness of animal lovers around the world.
Genlin has made a public commitment that he will only save 10% of his fortune for his family and friends, 90% will be donated to charity, especially campaigns concerning dogs.
