For the past 20 years, Chung has worked tirelessly in Central China for children whose parents have died of or are dying of HIV/AIDS via unsanitary blood trade. He has also raised significant public awareness of AIDS through exhibitions, media campaigns, and talks.
Today, Chi Heng Foundation sponsors 9,000 children in education and care, and cumulatively, over 20,000 children across twelve provinces in China. Chi Heng's programme has garnered the support of former President Bill Clinton, Yao Ming, and several organizations such as UNESCO, The Global Fund, The Asia Foundation, and The Clinton Foundation.
Deemed as a best practice model of its kind, the programme has become the largest non-governmental effort aimed at helping children impacted by AIDS in China (www.chfaidsorphans.com).
