NANCHANG, China - Former World No.1 Jelena Jankovic and Jiangxi native Zheng Wushuang paid a visit to orphans in the Nanchang Social Welfare Institute in partnership with WTA Charities at the Jiangxi Open on Sunday.

The duo came bearing gifts for the children, including frog-like scooters, baby milk powder and colorful tennis balls, and also participated in the childrens' craft class, making a collage and stringing beads with them. The kids later presented Jankovic and Zheng their handmade art work as gifts in return.

This charity event was jointly planned by the organizing committees of Jiangxi Open and Jiangxi Red Cross Society, aiming to utilize the social influence of international tournaments and star players to call for society’s attention on orphaned children.
