China Charities Aid Foundation for Children (CCAFC) held a ceremony in Beijing on the morning of August 30th to launch the ‘Blessed Children Fund”(祝福宝贝专项基金). According to CCAFC, the fund will be devoted to works in three aspects: helping seriously ill children living in poverty; disease screening; disease prevention education.
It is reported that the ‘Blessed Children Fund’ was first established by Blessed China (祝福中国), a grassroots NGO founded by Mr. Guo Peng in November 2013. Blessed China hopes that the operation of the organization becomes more professional and streamlined by working with CCAFC. Through taking advantage of CCAFC’s public fund-raising foundation status, they also hope to promote the concept of “prevention ahead of medical help” as a new health care method for children, and build platforms that can provide fast and all-round assistance for more children.
