Chinese Gov’t Joins with Half the Sky!!

Great news from Half the Sky, an international charity that goes into orphanages in China and puts in child care and educational programs, finds sponsors for childen, and does other great things, like providing shelter and help for children who were affected by the earthquakes in China a couple years ago.

Children helped by Half the Sky

They have been working together with the Chinese Government which now wants to implement Half-The-Sky inspired programs in all the orphanages (SWI) in China. AND will be paying for the training and programs! Wow! Fantastic news for all the children in SWI in China!

If you want to help out, you can sponsor a child partially or in whole… they have links to donate from many countries.

Sponsor a child with Half the Sky

My son and I pay about $29 Cdn per month to help sponsor a little boy who was born in Feb 2007, and we get regular updates on his education and development. It is very rewarding. Here is an example of the sponsorship pdf report we receive regularly.

But even if you can’t help out, I hope you’ll join me in rejoicing at the new initiatives together with the Chinese government and the China Center for Child Welfare and Adoption (formerly CCAA). With new programs in 60 SWI per year, they hope to have all the orphanages in China covered within 5 yrs, with the children getting proper care, nutrition, stimulation, education etc. Fantastic!!!

Online Auction to help Chinese Orphans

Love Without Boundaries border

Hi! I support this organization, Love Without Boundaries, which does wonderful work in China. They were one of the groups who set up aid specifically for children when there was that earthquake that saw so many schools collapse when government buildings stayed standing. They do tons of medical care for children: heart operations, cleft lip operations (like Big Boy) etc that make a huge difference in the children’s lives, or even save them. Many children are adoptable because of their interventions.

The have an auction every year of donated items, many of them artwork and unique handmade items, often with a Chinese theme, to raise money for their works. Please check out their offerings this year, and bid on the items of your choice.

Thanks so much for supporting such a worthwhile charity.
