Beijing Radiant Children’s Eye Hospital

On 4 June 2009, Ms. Frida Giannini, Mr. Patrizio di Marco and Ms. Mimi Tang of Gucci, along with representatives of the China Children and Teenagers’ Fund (CCTF) and the OSJ Radiant Foundation, visited the underprivileged children undergoing treatment at the Beijing Radiant Children’s Eye Hospital. The story books of Hope Education Foundation were presented to the children by the guests.

The Beijing Radiant Children’s Eye Hospital is a non-profit private medical institute that treats disadvantaged children with amblyopia with the support of the CCTF’s China Children’s Amblyopia Special Fund. The patients, ranging in age from 4-9 years old, prepared a spirited singing performance for the guests and gave a first hand account of what it was like living with the disease.
