Organizations that Support Children Overseas

Amity Sponsorship Projects
Amity is currently sponsoring several projects in Jiangxi Province including Foster Care, Hugging Grannies, education costs for school children and more. Amity is working in several provinces but the projects that Peggy Gurrad is organizing (involving 11 orphanages) are just in Jiangxi province. Donations go first to Altrusa Foundation in the USA so that they are tax deductible. For more information please contact: Peggy Gurrad.

The Foundation For Chinese Orphanages
is affiliated with FCC/New England, and was organized in 1996 in response to a strong desire within the membership to help those children still in the orphanages. FCO works directly with Chinese authorities to provide support for the orphanages. Their projects thus far have included industrial washers and dryers, foster care and flood relief, all in Hubei province. For more information, please contact: or visit the Web site.

The Orphan Relief Fund
Facilitates and funds humanitarian efforts on behalf of China's 1.5 million unseen and disabled orphans. This relief may include orphan daily care, orphan medical care, orphan education and orphan vocational training.
