The Joshua Hellmann Foundation for Orphan Diseases donates HK$1,000,000 to the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) launching the first extensive newborn metabolic screening program for inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) diseases. For more information, please click here.
“With up to 30,000 children and adults suffering from orphan diseases in Hong Kong, it is likely that every one of us knows someone who is affected, though we may not be aware of it. As a father, I feel a strong connection to Joshua Hellmann Foundation’s efforts to fight the lack of awareness and provide funding for the diagnosis of orphan diseases among children in our community. Having seen how their lives can be so positively impacted, I know action makes an enormous difference. I hope you will join me in taking up their cause as your own.”
