Hongbao for a Heart Raises More than 20,000RMB

25 February 2016

This half term, we have been raising awareness and funds for one of our local partner projects, Heart to Heart which provides life-saving heart surgery for children in need in China. One child’s surgery costs 25,000RMB and, due to the generosity of NAIS Pudong families, last year we were able to raise 13,000RMB through the Hongbao for a Heart Campaign. In collaboration with the Community Group, through fundraising at events such as the Christmas Bazaar and Summer Festival, we were able to fund operations for four children in need.

Hongbaos are a Chinese New Year tradition; a red envelope with a monetary gift given during holidays or special occasions.  As part of our Chinese New Year Celebrations, we gathered hongbaos to donate to our local partner project, Heart to Heart.

This year we are pleased to announce that we have surpassed the figure raised from last year with a fantastic 20,830RMB. We would like to thank everyone in our community who has supported this campaign and for your generosity.
