Sichuan Jinqiang basketball club donated 500,000 yuan to his charity to aid children's healthy development and ramp up school facilities. Yao asked the children to work hard and never give up and pursue their dreams.
Yao Ming, Yao Foundation Organiser, said, "We don't just need classrooms, books, computers and learning facilities. We also need to care more about children's personal development. We will work harder on this. All I want: is to give the children a brighter future."
