Interviewee: Rebecca Lee (Senior Programme Officer)
Interviewed and edited by: Jojo Poon
Devotees in the development industry often started out with a calling derived from a unique personal experience. For Rebecca, our Senior Programme Officer, that special experience took place during her university years. She was pursuing a degree in International Politics, and one of the subjects was International Relations. It was her first time acknowledging the wide disparity between the world’s rich and poor, “I didn’t think God intended the world to work this way: while some people were starving to death, others enjoyed excessive abundance. This was clearly wrong. I wanted to do something to make the world a better place,” Rebecca says. Since then, to make a difference for God (MAD for God) has become her motivation in serving the poor.
