Mission: The mission of the China Care Foundation is to give special needs Chinese orphans the opportunity for a better life and to empower youth through direct humanitarian service. By providing extensive medical, social and educational programs devoted to children, China Care makes a lasting contribution to our shared future.
The China Care Program at Half the Sky provides medical treatment and nurturing after-care for medically fragile orphaned infants. Whether receiving 24-hour loving attention in the Beijing Special Care Nursery or its adjacent Medical Family Care Unit or in the hospital watched over by a doting, trained nanny, tiny children fighting for their lives are never again alone in the world.
Once given a clean bill of health, children in The China Care Program at Half the Sky are enrolled in one of Half the Sky’s nurture and education programs while waiting until they are adopted or placed in permanent foster care with a mom and dad they can call their own.
Half the Sky’s Nurture and Education Programs provide loving environments as well as individualized developmental guidance to children growing up without a family of their own. These programs include, The Baby Sisters Infant Nurture Program, The Little Sisters Preschool Program, The Big Sisters Program and The Family Village Program.
The Youth Empowerment Program at China Care offers young people the opportunity to give of themselves and experience first-hand their own ability to touch the lives of children in need. Through the China Care Clubs and its Volunteer Program, students across the globe are making a difference in the world.
China Care Foundation has a clear mission to help disabled Chinese orphans receive life-saving surgeries.
One of my best friend's, Alice Chen, inspired me to get involved with China Care. After volunteering in one of the China Care children's homes, she began her freshman year at NYU. We were roommates that year. Together, with three others, we founded the NYU China Care club, a university club dedicated to raising funds and love for the children of China Care Foundation.
Being involved with the organization has given me a new perspective on what it means to care for others. Through raising funds for dozens of disabled children, I have had the opportunity to touch the lives of so many. For this, I am truly blessed.
