Louis Koo helped build 49 schools

Major Chinese dailies reported that Hong Kong actor Louis Koo Tin-lok is a silent philanthropist, who has quietly helped build 49 schools in rural China within three years.

Via his Koo Tin Lok Charitable Foundation, the star had also set up over 20 clinics and completed 50 water supply projects to help the underprivileged in remote areas.

It was learnt that Koo set up the foundation after seeing hundreds of thousands of people lose their homes to the Sichuan earthquake in 2008.

It was reported that staff at the foundation would also monitor the construction of these buildings.

Koo, however, said he did not want to talk about his charitable work, adding that he just wanted to help people.
