Show Your Support to a PATS Advisor and Hero

Dear PATS Supporters,

I'm currently in China, about to go visit the PATS sites in Anhui and Henan. On May 15, just before I come back to the states, I'm going to Hangzhou to visit PATS senior adviser Dr. Wang LiyaoHe is a 72 year old retired sociology professor from Hangzhou. He has been involved in AOS (AIDS Orphan Salvation Association of China) and PATS since 2004, and has served as PATS's senior adviser ever since. He has been crucial to our work in liasing between AOS and PATS. He frequently visited Fuyang  once ever 2-3 months and personally knows all of the PATS children and oversees their care, helps to educate their parents, and train our community health workers.

 

I think everyone who's interacted with him can agree that in a country with 1 billion plus people, Dr. Wang is one of a kind. Unfortunately, of late he's been fighting metastasized pancreatic cancer, and will soon begin chemotherapy.
I think it would mean so much to him to know how much the PATS community supports and appreciates him.

 

Please show your support in honor of him by donating whatever you can to PATS.  We will relay the message that our GlobalGiving supporters are behind him and the organization he has been helping to sheperd all these years.

 

Sincerely,
Jialan Wang
PATS Board Member
