This is a new charity that the British School of Guangzhou will be raising funds throughout the year for. Hopeful Hearts Guangzhou mainly receive cases involving new-born babies who require major heart surgery, The British School of Guangzhou will be working closely with this charity to help fund these life changing surgeries. Once Hopeful Hearts receive a child in need we will be able to arrange visits to the cardiology department to see the benefits of your donations.
