On January 21, the American Chamber of Commerce in South China (AmCham South China) as part of its AmCham-Mead Johnson Charity Effort, brought a large group of business and community leaders including executives from multinational corporations to Chang Yuan Village the third consecutive year to deliver material support to the impoverished villagers.
Under the administration of Meizhou City, Chang Yuan Village has a population of 3,125 individuals, approximately 20 percent of whom are “poverty-stricken” by official measurements. AmCham South China’s collection efforts have resulted in materiel worth over RMB 3,113,097, including 13,000 pairs of high quality shoes, clothing, bedding, hygiene products, educational materials, toys and food from members.
AmCham South China’s mission to the village was augmented by a team of medical professionals from the Guangzhou Women and Children’s Medical Center, who offered free on-site medical checkups and consultations to the villagers. Also, to achieve sustainable development, potential investors and experts were invited to join the delegation for investment inspection during the visit to the village.
