Point to point donation
One mission of Wilber Foundation is to help children in need of urgent medical care. "We manage point to point donations, not through any intermediary. We need to make sure that donations are delivered to the right place", Sonny explained, "For example, when we go to the hospital, we give money directly to the accounting department of the hospital, because there are some cases that parents are untrustworthy."
"We also have internal procedures to evaluate how urge the case is, whether we have the reason to donate. We score each considerable factor, and choose the case that has the highest score", said Sonny, who was a former professional auditor.
Mentors to give children guidance
Wilber Foundation also manages educational programs. "Giving money is the easiest part, but I think for kids, we need to look more at long term developments, like education", said Sonny.
The Foundation launched its first education program "Little Artists" in this summer, which was for children who had talents of arts but didn't have chance to learn due to family background. They recruited 70 children from 200 applicants.
Sonny himself is an art lover, and he invited some famous artists and singers to teach these children. "It is one feature that makes us distinct from other organizations. I hope that children can actually feel what it is like being a real singer or artist."
"One local artist actually helped a 16-yaer-old boy get into an artist school", Sonny is very satisfied with this program, "We hope to give children long term guidance, as mentors, not just three months' accompany. We will continue this program every year."
