Wang Yun, a TV host and founder of a charity from north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, has dedicated herself to solving local residents' practical difficulties over the past 11 years.

In December 2006, Inner Mongolia Radio and TV Station introduced Xin Wen Tian Tian Kan (News Every Day), a program which features "putting focus on people's livelihood and spreading humanistic care."

As the host, Wang has closely connected herself with common people from the beginning. Over the years, she and her colleagues have raised medical funds for children with leukemia, helped job seekers find employment and helped find lost seniors.

So far, they have helped around 20,000 people in over 50,000 matters, collecting nearly 90 million yuan (U.S.$ 13,830,195) in charity funds in total.

Wang's strong sense of social responsibility adds warmth to her TV shows which have become more and more popular and won many awards.

However, she values truly helping others over receiving honors. "When people encounter difficulties, they can think of the program and me. That is my biggest achievement," she said.

At work, Wang spares no efforts to offer help, say those who know her. In her spare time, she is also a member of the Chinese Young Volunteers Association.

Gradually, she realized that an individual's strength is limited, so she founded the Inner Mongolia Yun Charity Association in 2016.

In the past year, members of the organization increased from 50 to 5,000, carrying out nearly 100 charitable activities.

With the support of local TV station and poverty alleviation foundation, she set up a bank account to raise funds for people with eye conditions.

As more and more volunteers joined her association, the team has made some notable achievements in projects related to educational assistance and environmental protection.
