Do you know about a wide spread occupational disease in China？
Nine out of ten workers who die due to the effects of their work environment do so because they have contracted Dust Lung Disease (Pneumoconiosis). You may not have heard of this disease which causes great pain in the lungs, distortion of the voice and eventually death.
Our charity, which is supported by Love Save Pneumoconiosis (大爱清尘) foundation, aims to provide medical treatment for rural migrants who suffer from pneumoconiosis. Dust Lung Disease is an illness caused by the repeated inhalation of industrial dust particles over an extended period of time. We have joined with the Love Save Pneumoconiosis Foundation because it provides diverse activities to support Pneumoconiosis sufferers, including help such as mental care, educational support, job support and care packages.
In order to help Pneumoconiosis sufferers have a better quality of life, we must strive to increase public awareness of black lung (a common name for Pneumoconiosis) and how it can be prevented. We divide our work in four parts: treatment and support, promotion, fund raising and policy promotion. Further activities and arrangements will be announced in the DHSZ Charity Work WeChat account (please see at the end of this article).
