NBA Player Yao Ming Visits With AIDS Orphans in China

July 18, 2005

NBA player Yao Ming on Sunday visited with about 30 AIDS orphans in China's Anhui province and listened to their stories, Xinhuanet reports. He arrived in China last week to participate in a Basketball Without Borders event and join the country's team for the Stankovic Continental Champions Cup, which begins July 26 in Beijing (Xinhuanet, 7/18). Yao, who is from China, plans to attend HIV/AIDS education events for young people and pose for a poster aimed at reducing the stigma associated with HIV-positive people in the country, the South China Morning Post reports. He also promised to visit Hong Kong in September to raise money for HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention programs (Cui, South China Morning Post, 7/18). In 2004, Yao and former NBA star Magic Johnson were featured in a series of public service announcements aimed at promoting HIV/AIDS awareness in China (Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report, 10/18/04).
