The school decided to support just one charity throughout the year in order to build a strong relationship and to have more of an impact. The school chose Hopeful Hearts, a wonderful organisation, whose mission is to raise money and fund life-saving heart surgery for children of low-income Chinese families.
We worked very closely with Hopeful Hearts Guangzhou who have supported the lives of 47 children (in Nanjing, Chengdu and Guangzhou) this year. With the money raised in school we have been able to support at least 7 of these children.
We have been blown away by the generosity of the school community this year, I would like to thank everyone for your contributions to this year’s charitable initiatives, and look forward to keeping young hearts beating in 2016/17.
