In an interview, Ning shared his motivation to become a charity ambassador. He noted his personal experience as the primary driver, stating, "I was sent by my father to an amateur sports school because I was feeble and sick when I was young. What I suffered and the success I am experiencing, motivates me to keep focusing on the health of children."

The work of the charity is of growing importance. China is currently facing tough challenges regarding CHD in childhood. It is estimated that more than 2.5 million children are suffering from heart disease and a further 200 thousand will be born with the condition. More alarmingly, two thirds of these children will not receive treatment and a further one third are expected to die from congenital heart disease.

Since its initiation the project has become an encompassing treatment program; including preliminary screening, treatment, a volunteering service and medical training. By the end of November 2015, 4,341 underprivileged kids with CHD had been treated with the help of NU SKIN. It is hoped that with the help of Ning Zetao the work of the charity and program will continue to grow and help countless more children and families in the future.
