Hemophilia Home of China, founded in September in 2009, in an NGO that provides treatment and financial aid for hemophiliac patients. If children with hemophilia can receive early intervention, many of them can enjoy the same health as normal children. Unfortunately, hemophilia treatment is extremely expensive; many families, especially rural families, cannot afford treatment for children. To learn more about Hemophilia Home of China, click here.
On April 27, Beijing blew strong winds, but the strong winds could not blow out the thankful fire in our hearts.
On April 17, 2012, the day of the 24th World Hemophiliac Day, Hemophilia Home of China and Rare Disease Care Center held public benefit activities in the Shijingshan Wal-mart, Zhichun Road Wal-mart, and Wanjing Wal-mart stores. Our staff contacted the Wal-mart Group before activities. On hearing that we wanted to hold public benefit activities in the hall of Wal-mart stores, they were willing to support us and allocated areas for us at once, which helped us greatly. We spread basic knowledge about hemophiliacs to the public during the activities. In order to let more people know about hemophiliacs and help them, we discussed the particular difficulties hemophiliacs were going through.
Holding a flag that read “Care for hemophiliacs, love unites in Wal-mart” in our hands, we took grateful hearts to the Wal-mart stores. Thanks to their help, we could successfully hold the event. Here on, Hemophilia Home of China would like to give their thanks to all the staff of Wal-mart. Thank you for your love and support. We believe that pain and difficulties are no longer problems as long as love exists in the world. Facing life and future we will become stronger.
