ChinaHeart helps bring change for China’s orphans and children living in poverty, 1 by 1
ChinaHeart serves China’s orphans in various ways. No one is sure of the number of orphans in China but many estimates put the number between 9 and 15 million, so clearly the needs are huge. The ChinaHeart family is made up of children in orphanages, poor rural situations and some whom we have even been able to help through university.
We provide opportunities for volunteers to come and help through teams and short term visits. Lives are being changed, not only China’s orphans but also children and their families who are living in poverty. ChinaHeart volunteers often speak of the change they also experience while helping the children.
ChinaHeart is helping children through education, special needs training and fostering. We believe we have a message of hope, a message that offers light in their often otherwise darkened world. Many of the children we serve speak of loneliness, even in the midst of such a large number of people. But to bring this message we also believe we need to bring help in the natural or physical areas of education, mentoring, food and clothing.
“Dear Auntie & Uncle…thank you for the gift you gave to me. You help me go to school. I don’t know how to thank you. There are 2 people in my family, my auntie and I. My father left us this 1 storey house and my mother passed away when I was 7 days old. My father died when I was about 6 or 7 years old. My grandma passed away when I was 9. Thank you for your help and concern that let us live like other people”.
