Amazing   The appearance of 8 mini football babies

In the middle of match relaxation, the appearance of 8 mini football babies put the atmosphere to a high tide. Zou Jiao, one of
the dwarfs, told the reporters proudly, "Te dwarfs are also beautiful and fashionable; the mini football babies are the best
proof of this point of view."

Onsite   Many leaders moved to tears.

As the social vulnerable groups the dwarfs had been neglected and marginalized for a long time. Most of them could not get into the normal social life. They are bearing the difficulties and suffering that ordinary people could never imagine, especially in education, employment, marriage etc. Onsite, the reporters witnessed Wu Kang, the shortest man in China, who is only 68
cm tall in his twenty-two years old. Professor Luo Xiaoping, president of Asia-Pacific Childrens Endocrine Society, standing
committee member of Chinese Academy of Pediatrics, and group leader of the Endocrinology Genetic Metabology, said, "
China was in a leading position internationally in the treatment of dwarf. Wu Kang, who was diagnosed as dwarf in an earlier
time, could win out the opportunity to grow through growth hormone treatment". 

Among them, the tallest dwarf, Li Xiang, had reached 176 cm after receiving proper treatment. The audiences were shocked
when he standed beside Wu Kang. No doubt that LiXiangs experiment gave hope to those who want to change the height and fate of being dwarfs. The dwarfs on the stage told their stories one by one. Some of them are college graduates. However, they were repeatedly humiliated and rejected when applying for jobs; their only hope was to live happily like an ordinary man and
the only dream was to grow up. At the moment of being touched by their speaking, Sui Dianjun, director of Jinlin Department of Health, wet his eyes. A lot of leaders and the audiences were also moved to tears and applauded warmly in return.

Gladness:  GenSci donated the first batch of 2 million RMB

According to Lei Shumin, the social saving power to the dwarfs went from strength to strength. Since 2008, when Chinese
Red Cross Foundation joined hands with GenSci to develop the project of medicare assistance for dwarf children, more than 160 patients of dwarf patients had been succored. Onsite, GenSci donated 2 million RMB, to further develop the assistant
project to the dwarf patients. Lei highly valued GenScis donation and pointed that the running of the fund had offered a formal way for those who wanted to offer their help to the dwarf patients.
Well-known young actor Tong Dawei and his wife GuanYue undertook the roles of the love angels for the "Growing Angel
Fund". They appealed to more people to participate in the assistance project for the dwarf patients. An encouraging new to the dwarf patients and their parents was that some local governments, such as Shanghai, Zhejiang and other provinces had add the growth hormone to the list of national health insurance directory. The combined attention of the government, social power, caring enterprises and people make the ideal height dream of dwarf patients come true.
