Dean Zhi Yang said:“Participation in social welfare events drawn people’s attention to social issues. In 2020 we had won the battle against poverty and achieve the goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all aspects. In the past, fundraising for the foundation has been successful, and it should in the future maintain engagement with more stakeholders about how they can get involved with fundraising.”
