Dear CFLF friends:

The majority of children living in the villages Kenya and Uganda do not have shoes and some are short of food. To make their situation worse, jiggers (sand fleas) has become a major challenge: the jiggers get onto people’s feet as they walk around, then lay eggs in their feet. As a result, many of them suffer from painful sores and infections.

CFLF is now cooperating with Step30 from Taiwan and collect shoes for the shoeless individuals so that they can live a life free from the threat of jiggers. Please donate any used or new pairs of shoes to these needy people so that they may WALK TO A BETTER FUTURE.

The Care for Life Foundation has started their fundraising campaign, hoping to raise $64,000 to buy a small bus. This fundraiser is to help support the many youths who’ve recently moved toKunming(the capital ofYunnan,China)

Esther Ho, from the Care for Life Foundation points out, that withinChina’s many cities, big or small, there are in total 20 million kids who, along with their parents, migrate to the cities to work. They have become a part of the migrating crowd and lives in what is called “city villages”. Although they live in cities, they still live with poor living conditions, lack of parents’ support and unfamiliarity to the school and place. This results in kids dropping of school and without the care they need, forced to face many dangers and difficulties. For example drowning or being kidnapped.

When Esther was at theKunminghouse inYunnan, she had contact with a non-profit organization approved by the city officials – the Heart to Heart Community Care. Esther was also introduced to the ways this group helps the “city village” children. These are ways such as playing movies, distributing books and providing safety education about abduction. The only problem is the lack of a convenient means of transportation.

Esther along with the Care for Life Foundation, having the same purpose, came together to brainstorm for a way to help the Heart to Heart Community Care and their job.

The current estimation of $64,000 to buy a car will improve the efficiency of their services. Esther also points out that many cities inChinaare going through rapid development therefore demolishing many “city villages”. As these targets dissipate further and further away, it adds to the difficulty for providing services.

The Ford 2008 Van (selected goal) is $32,500 along with 24 months of warranty, gas, and repair of $17,200 with some additional modification fees, is estimated to enable workers to engage with 150,000 of the migrating population.

The foundation has called on immigrants ofHong Kongto donate part of the 6000HK given by the government. They will then use this money to help communities in need.

The Care for Life Foundation held a press conference on the 13th where the 5 founders of this organization announced the official establishment of this foundation. At the same time, they introduced their first project: to fundraise for a vehicle that will be able to provide children, newly migrated toKunming, with recreation activities, medical care, extracurricular education etc… The goal is to raise $64,000.

The 5 founders of the organization includes director and Chairman (Esther Ho), vice-chairman and secretary (Wallace Chan), vice-chairman and project coordinator (Frankie Fung), director (Tina Tsai) and treasurer (Debby Wong)

Esther declared that in the summer of 2010 and 2011, she, along with (Debby Wong) and a few friends, headed toKunmingto visit a few impoverished families. This visit inspired her to establish this foundation in hopes that these problems being faced could gain some more outside attention.

Esther states thatKunmingattracted a large migrating population to live there. There are 337 city villages, with an immigrating population of over 1.2 million. “Since the year 2008, theKunminggovernment started, on a large scale, renovating the city villages. In doing so, it transformedKunminginto a big work site and a death trap for migrant children”. Due to this action, other than having serious drop-out rates, there are many dangerous occurrences such as drowning, scalding, car accidents, fire accidents, child labour, abduction etc…

The Care for Life Foundation will be working with the Heart to Heart Community Care, established by many university professors fromYunnanandHong Kong, to provide these migrant children with services and care. Debby Wong reveals that “in the past, these professors have been using bicycles as means of transportation. This method is laborious with little results. However, if it is possible to attain a small bus that can contain up to 17 people, the statistics of providing service for 30,000 people per month will rise to be serving 150,000 people per month.

On the press conference on the 3rd, the 5 founders will initiate the first donation of $750, and the foundation will hold the fundraising dinner on December 4th.

InVancouver, a group of enthusiastic volunteers who help support the poor inChinaannounced their newly established foundation on Thursday. This foundation is called the Care for Life Foundation. In hopes to buy a small 17 seated bus inYunnan, the foundation wishes to raise $64,000 this year. This bus will be used for providing and improving the services for impoverished children inYunnan. The Chief executive officer of the International Youth Services Society (IYSS) also the mother of this foundation, Esther Ho, along with 4 other members held a press conference to announce the launching of this foundation. The 4 other members include (blank blank and blank). Esther points out that inChina, with their rapid growth in economy, forced many kids to move to remote areas outside the city with their family. These children, with little to no exposure to the outside world, have a lack of knowledge for personal safety, personal hygiene, and needless to say, recreational activities. As a caring volunteer she also states that the purpose of establishing this foundation is to help the migrants in the city villages ofChina’s more remote areas. They hope thatCanada’s organizations can provide some support to help make positive changes in these impoverished places.

Esther points out that because of the lack of education, these children are prone to accidents without the ability to realize and recognize dangerous situations. She hopes that by providing a small bus, volunteers and social workers can improve the efficiency and provide better services for more families. Director (Wallace Chan) expresses that other than planning the fundraising dinner on December 3rd, he suggests theHong Kong immigrants, eligible for the government’s “6,000HK plan”, to donate part of it in support of this foundation.

Re:      Care for Life Foundation –

            Charity Dinner, December 1, 2011, Thursday, Richmond, BC

In the summer of 2010 and 2011, we visited Kunming in China, where we witnessed the hardships of migrant families who left their ancestral village to become migrant workers in a city filled with painstaking labour.  Often these migrants are tucked away in pockets of poorest parts of the community.  They toil very long hours every day thus leaving their children unattended and exposed to all kinds of hazardous situations such as burning, drowning, car injuries, human trafficking, child labour, violence and abuse. These dangerous or unhealthy conditions often result in them being injured, made ill, or even killed as a consequence of ignorance of safety and health standards.

Having encountered all these distressing incidents during our visits, we were motivated to form a charitable group called “Care for Life Foundation” in Vancouver in September 2011.  Through fundraising efforts and working in partnership with a social services group in Kunming, we hope to be able to provide these neglected children with basic educational services and counselling in a safe environment, thus assisting them to find proper ways to learn by themselves, analyze and understand the day-to-day problems they confront.  And in order to do that a 17-seater van, after modification, is required to deliver these services.  Our financial goal for this community service van project is C$64,000.00.

To achieve this goal, we are holding a special fundraising dinner on December 1, 2011 (Thursday), at the Riverside Banquet Halls in Richmond.  We cordially invite you to attend as our honoured guest in this worthy cause.  Please see poster attached for details.

We would appreciate your response soon.

Yours truly,

Care for Life Foundation
