Toby Leung (梁靖琪) attended her first event in Hong Kong since returning from her one-week trip in Cambodia. There, she helped people paint houses and interacted with children.
The 35-year-old actress recalled her meeting with a two-year-old girl, who was sold for a “first night.” Expressing that her heart still felt heavy about their meeting, she shared, “The mothers there would be very happy whenever they give birth to a daughter, because that means they could sell them. I met a 14-year-old girl who was sold, and she spent three nights with a client at a hotel. After coming out of that room, she became worthless. She was then sold to a brothel, and the girl reached out to a charity for help, but in those 22 days she waited, she was raped 198 times. That means nine people per day. I got chills.” Toby’s eyes turned red after telling the story.
After hearing the girls’ stories, Toby confided to her mother and older sister. She expressed that she wants to bring her niece to Cambodia soon, so she too could experience it. Asking if she would go again, Toby said, “I will. At least once a year.”
