Action star Jackie Chan continued his fight for charity this week with a visit to China’s Henan province.

The star unveiled a plaque at a centre for mentally ill children in Xinxiang, and took part in a friendly table tennis tournament with the children.

A fundraising auction was also held, including items from Chan’s personal collection, such as a T-shirt he designed, and a signed CD. The sale raised US$373,314, which will go to the actor’s Dragon’s Heart children’s center, which provides education and rehabilitation facilities to mentally handicapped children. Initiated in 2004, Chan’s Dragon's Heart Foundation has financed the building of 21 schools across China.

Chan also took the time to visit a remotely located old people’s home and share a meal with the residents.
