Chinese Premier Spends World AIDS Day With AIDS-Affected Children
December 1, 2006
Today in Beijing, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao sported a red AIDS awareness ribbon as he welcomed 15 AIDS-affected children to the headquarters of the Chinese Communist Party. The children -- two of whom are HIV-positive and 13 of whom were orphaned by AIDS -- presented the premier with drawings they had made to symbolize their lives and dreams. "We have done a lot to combat AIDS, but the job is not well done," said Wen. "By all means, we are going to send a signal that more care should be given to AIDS-affected children."
