In the same year, she donated a million dollar to China Children and Teenager Funds, for the construction of recreation center and sport grounds for orphans and disabled children in Wuhan. She remarked: “Children are our future, yet, looking at these poor kids, who lost their family, suffered from illness, I feel really sad. If they can receive more concern by the public, assist and support them, in one day when they have grown up, they would definitely contribute back to the community’
