London: Action man Jackie Chan donated 125,000 pounds to officials in Thailand to help boost the country`s flood relief fund.

The 58-year-old, a United Nations Children`s Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador, toured orphanages which were affected by severe storms in late 2011 and early 2012, reported Daily Star.

He also looked around damaged centres for the elderly, and he offered up supplies and a 125,000 pound cheque on behalf of the Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation to continue the clean-up effort.

Chan, who shared photos of the trip on his website, said, "I grew up poor and struggled, and now I have enough money to share with the needy."
