As part of its overall charity activities this year, AmCham South China also coordinated the donation of more than RMB 450,000 in cash to the Guangzhou Youth Development Foundation which was donated by chamber’s members Mead Johnson Nutrition and Canton Tower Color China Restaurant Co., Ltd. These funds will be used to save lives of orphaned children in need of immediate life saving surgery, and help raise Chang Yuan Village above the poverty line. Substantial progress in the village has been made, including a newly-built soccer field and a community center funded by AmCham members’ cash donations.

Guangzhou People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries of Guangzhou Foreign Affairs Bureau, Guangzhou Charity Association of Guangzhou Civil Affairs Bureau, Guangzhou Women and Children’s Medical Center, and Guangzhou Youth Development Foundation were partners of American Chamber of Commerce South China in the AmCham-Mead Johnson Charity Effort this year.

This is the sixth consecutive year that AmCham South China has collected donations on behalf of impoverished villages in the relatively affluent Guangdong Province.
