In Kunming, China, a group of adults with AIDS struggling to re-enter the labour market due to the social stigma that too often comes with this illness. Unable to find work, it was not just the AIDS patients affected by their illness, but their whole family too, and in particular their children. The Chi Heng Foundation supports children in a family affected by AIDS by providing them with an education. Any donation you can make, would be greatly appreciated.
Founded in 1998, the Chi Heng Foundation (CHF) is a charity registered and based in Hong Kong with offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Anhui and Henan. “Chi Heng” means “wisdom in action”, and at CHF we believe we must use our knowledge to help people in need. With this in mind, CHF moves from village to village throughout central China since 2002, offering help to any child with at least one parent who is living with or has died of HIV/AIDS. CHF primarily focuses on paying for the children’s education and living expenses, making sure all funds are delivered directly to their homes, schools, or programs by our staff. CHF promises a long-term commitment to helping the children not only in completing their educations but also to receiving dependable and comprehensive support. Through CHF’s psychosocial support and community self help programs, we hope the children can grow up unashamed of their parents’ HIV status, be educated and develop a sense of social responsibility to help others. Our charity has consistently kept fund raising/admin expenses at low level, so most of the funds go to education sponsorship and programs for the children.CHF promises a long-term commitment to helping children not only complete their education but also receive dependable, comprehensive support.
