Dr Shih had a daughter born in Canada, who is mentally handicapped. Although Dr Shih and his wife had encountered a lot of hardship in looking after their daughter, they decided that in future that they would help the physically and mentally handicapped and other under-privileged groups in society to develop to the best of their abilities.
