Each year ANZA hosted a variety of events that brought expats from around the world together to socialise and have fun in Beijing... yes, with a little Aussie and Kiwi flavour added in!
Our events were also an important opportunity to make a contribution to our local community. To this end ANZA chose to support local medical foster homes who were/are caring for orphaned children with serious medical issues, many of whom need life-saving surgeries.
We raised money through the raffles that are held in conjunction with our special events. These raffles were not possible without the generous support of our wonderful ANZA sponsors in supplying amazing raffle prizes.
We have been able to make a huge difference in the lives of many children and will we hope others will continue to do so.
Thank you for supporting ANZA Beijing.
The charities we worked with were:
Chunmiao Little Flower www.chunmiaolittleflower.org
New Hope Foundation www.hopefosterhome.com
Blue Sky Healing Home www.blueskyhealinghome.org
Morning Star Foundation www.morningstarproject.org
We would like you to meet Selah.
In 2013 Selah was brought to Morning Star Foster Home abandoned, wounded and requiring urgent critical care. Doctors gave her very little chance of survival.
Selah's life-saving surgeries were funded by ANZA Beijing donations and today she is enjoying life and love with her Forever Family in the US.
We are so proud of her.
Sadly not all stories turn out as well as Selah's but ANZA Beijing was ready to give these children a chance at life and to let them know they are loved.
With your support we made a difference.
