Very belated thanks to everyone who volunteered, baked, sold, attended and performed at our 2014 Winter Bazaar! We raised a record 123,000 RMB which has gone to this year’s nominated charities:
Promised Land (www.plse.org), a Shekou-based charity which houses and/or educates children with learning difficulties. The children are given an education and the skills to enable them to participate in Chinese society. Promised Land requested that we used the money to buy them some essentials for their home, including mattresses, cooking oil, rice, kitchen utensils, cleaning equipment and more. The PSA purchased and delivered these items in February.
Habitat for Humanity (www.habitat.org), a charity which builds and repairs affordable home, in sustainable communites. Our donation will go Habitat for Humanity here in China. As a thank you for our donation, the charity invited a number of SIS High School students to participate in one of their building programmes in this region – update to follow.
