Iseek Cultural Center is a public welfare organization initiated by patients with PAH (pulmonary artery hypertension), which aims to provide support and service for people with invisible disabilities as PAH.
Yesterday, it became warm in Beijing. We joined a charity sale at the campus, for it is graduate season and many people take out their belongings and sale at low prices.
Some clubs raise money for Ya’an earthquake, but we raise money for World PAH (pulmonary arterial hypertension) Day. It is also kind of campus activity.
I have been in Foreign Trade University for the activity twice. We have participated in “blue lips” activity last year, so we are familiar to the people here. Someone bought a T-shirt with 60 yuan which was sold 55 yuan. The buyer offered 5 yuan more for the donation.
There are many international students in the university, but they are still curious about the English words “Get Breathless For Pulmonary Hypertension” on the T-shirt.
Lack of public attention for PAH is the situation in the world. World PAH Day let us to work together for 25 million PAH patients.
