According to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, the number of "Left-behind Children" in rural China has reached over 60 millions! Due to prolonged lacking of parental care and discipline, these neglected children's holistic developments in psychological, emotional and educational aspects and in character suffer immensely, leading to many social problems. Non-government statistics shows tens of thousands of children suffer accidental casualties each year due to the absence of adult supervision, many of them are "Left-behind Children".
In order to protect the children from the dangers of life and give them guidance with love, Love Foundation ventures into rural China where they live, and actively provides various resources to support the rural local units to organise three to four weeks "Happy Summer Camp" for the children. The goal is for the children to receive love, care & attention, educate them in the truth of life and instill in them an upright character through various interest and educational activities, broaden their horizon and encourage them to live a healthy, positive and productive life.
We also help to train village women as volunteers and caring mothers to go to the countryside to actively participate in the Love and Care Campaign for the "Left-behind Children" . We hope that this dual-track support work will benefit our country and farming communities!
With God's blessing and the support of patrons in the past few years, Love Foundation has held numerous Happy Summer Camps in the cities and counties of 14 provinces. We have subsidized more than 4,000 rural local unit and more than 10,000 village women being trained. Over 400 thousand families benefited tremendously from taking part in our Summer Camps.
From the testimony of those rural local units and children who have participated in the Happy Summer Camps, we were excited to see that the Love and Care Campaign produced so many positive and fruitful changes in the children's lives!
The old saying goes "It takes ten years to plant a tree but a hundred to rear a person." It is vital to seize opportunities to work on and be persistent in cultivating our children's lives. Love Foundation will strive to carry on our vision and dedicate our every efforts and resources to care for the rural regions of our nation.
It is a long and arduous road to fulfil the mission of Love foundation. We sincerely invite people from all walks of life to join us, in the interest of "Left- behind Children" and the social issues facing the nation, to demonstrate kind heartedness and join the charity cause. Together with Love Foundation in the consecrated journey of serving, we inherit the sacred mission of supporting and caring for the children, we bless the "Left- behind Children" and witness the imperative moment when God blesses our country!
