(Minghui.org) The Asian Heritage Network at General Mills, America’s third largest food company, recently issued a “Serving the World by Serving the Community Award” to employee Pingping Yu for her efforts raising awareness about organ harvesting atrocities and the persecution of Falun Gong in China.
The award was announced on October 27 during the closing ceremony of the company’s annual “Asian Leadership Conference” at its global headquarters in Golden Valley, MN.
Mrs. Carmen Johnson, the director of Pingping’s department, issued the award. She told the more than 200 attendees about Ms. Yu’s volunteer work in helping raise awareness in the local community and urging community leaders to help stop organ harvesting atrocities.
She said she admired Ms. Yu for her and other Minnesota volunteers’ unyielding efforts to reveal the persecution to the Minnesotans and the community leaders, including the legislature.
She also mentioned the recently passed MN Senate Resolution 2090 which condemns forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience in China. She thanked Ms. Yu for helping her and other Minnesotans learn about the persecution.
Ms. Yu accepted the award along with a hearty hug and sincere congratulations from Mrs. Johnson.
