To remember World Tuberculosis Day on March 24, the Home of Love Fellowship in Yiyang, Hunan hosted "Prevent AIDS And Tuberculosis for Health" event on March 23.

More than 20 members participated in the activity. They made over a dozen red information boards and brochures for AIDS prevention to give to passers-by with a detailed explanation of the diseases. The activity was funded by the Amity Foundation and other organizations. They also hosted a tuberculosis prevention activity with No. 4 People's Hospital of Yiyang City and the Center for Disease Prevention and Control.

According to Pastor Yin Jianhui, chairman of the CCC&TSPM of Yiyang, it has been a year and a half since the fellowship was founded with the aim of doing social service. They have held activities on opposing drugs and laws and have also visited patients with AIDS and drug addicts.
