Bringing Aid to Children in China's Orphanages

 

Right now we have an urgent need for child sponsors!!  We have several children that need full or partial support for foster care and/or schooling.  Below is a list of the orphans in need.  Please email peggy@altrusa.info if you have questions or would like to help.  It's so important to keep these orphans in their loving foster homes!  I'm sure you can picture how much of a difference this makes compared to institutional care.  And schooling is also so important.  We have some orphans in college and university who are well on their way to becoming independent adults but we can't stop their support before they get there!  There are also younger children in school, including kindergarten through high school.  And with so many special needs children in the orphanages now, education at outside Special Education Schools when available is so important, as is hiring Special Education Teachers to work at the orphanages when outside schools aren't available.

 

Any amount would help.  Small amounts, especially when given monthly, can really add up.  Email peggy@altrusa.infoif you'd like a link to monthly giving.

We provide

  • Foster care 
  • Hugging Grannies
  • School tuition
  • Nutritional support
  • Special education teachers
  • Physical therapists
  • Service trips with U.S. professionals providing training to Chinese staff

and meet various other needs for children in several orphanages in the Jiangxi province in China.

 

We publish reports from each orphanage twice a year. These reports go to those who have indicated their interest in that particular location. If you'd like to do that, just email us under "Sign up for our newsletters!" at the left.

As you can see, Jiangxi is in the southeast of China. **
 

Our current focus is on special education. Due to the recent regionalization of orphanages (read more here), the institutions have increased populations of children with severe disabilities, and professional special educators have become even more essential.

 

Where in the past we’ve encouraged donors to sponsor a child in foster care, now we’re inviting you to sponsor a child who needs special education. Just as in the past, you’ll receive two reports a year on that child’s progress, while your donation goes to pay the professionally-trained teacher’s salary.

 

To sponsor a child, or get more information and photos, please email Peggy. To learn more about our special education efforts, click here.
