Chen Jiashen is energetic, fit and plays basketball regularly. As a healthy person, he realized that his blood was valuable to people who needed transfusions and could save lives. That’s why he’s been donating blood three times a year for the last 15 years.
He’s also an enthusiastic advocate for the cause of blood donation. He’s persuaded his wife and his basketball teammates to donate too. China suffers enormous shortages of blood and Chen Jiashen believes that participating in some form of charity work is every Chinese person’s responsibility
