Several current and former NBA players, including China's small giant Yao Ming, on Sunday participated in a promotional event to help AIDS orphans and HIV/AIDS-affected children in Shanghai.



China's portal website Sina reports that Yao Ming, former Chicago Bulls great Scottie Pippen, former Los Angeles Laker Vlade Divac, Golden State Warriors' center forward Adonal Foyle, Yao Ming's teammate Luther Head and other NBA stars, taught basketball to AIDS orphans from from Anhui Province, Yunnan Province and other regions at the Shanghai Sports Institute, as well as exchanging gifts with them.


As part of the "Basketball without Borders" event, the aim of Sunday's activity is to promote friendship, healthy living and education with an emphasis on HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention.


Yao Ming called on people to shed their discrimination against children living with HIV/AIDS, and to offer more care and understanding.
