Foster Care Program
The widespread of natural disasters and poor medical care throughout China saw the increase in orphans and disabled children. To help those affected, CFCF established a "Foster Care Program" in poverty-stricken areas in Yunnan, Shaanxi, and Gansu in 1998. The Program aimed to provide orphans with a foster family, education opportunities, living allowances and emergency medical subsidies. This gave the children a chance to develop and grow physically and mentally, integrate into the society after they grow up, and eventually give back to the community.
The Foster Care Program has had its successes from 1998 to 2019 (21 years). With the help of HK$10.9 million in sponsorship, it has benefitted approximately 9.5 thousand orphans. These individuals were able to complete Junior High School. Some even managed to graduate from High School and enter University.
As public interest grew in this said Program, more organizations became aware of the current situation. This resulted in the Government taking over the "Foster Care Program" in a more comprehensive manner.
With the completion of the "Foster Care Program" in 2019, CFCF has since shifted its focus to other Projects such as helping underprivileged children receive an all rounded education. In addition to textbook knowledge, these children would also receive spiritual and character development.
