On April 23, 2019, more than 140 members of the fifth SSCLF’s council, overseas directors, honorary directors, special fund managers and guests gathered at the Blossom Hall of Hengshan Hotel to hold the 2019 annual SSCLF’s council member meeting
The annual meeting was presided over by SSCLF’s vice chairman Xu Dexin. Representatives of the Soong Ching Ling Foundations in Japan, South Africa, Italy, Philippines, Singapore, Switzerland, Sweden and France, and directors of SSCLF from the United States and Hong Kong also attended the annual public welfare event.
Participants and guests first watched the Shanghai Soong Ching Ling Foundation promotional film “The Power of Growth”.
During the five years from 2014 to 2018, under the leadership of the fifth council, SSCLF has always adhered to Soong Ching Ling’s public welfare concept and spirit, bravely innovated and boldly explored, and made great progress, and the social credibility and influence have been constantly improved.
In the past five years, SSCLF’s total revenue was 553 million yuan, of which 243 million yuan was donated. Total expenditure was 284 million yuan, of which 261 million yuan was project funding. Project funding for 2018 reached a record high of 80.96 million yuan. By the end of 2018, there were 46 special funds and 354 public welfare projects implemented, benefiting more than 5 million people. It has basically realized the expected goal set in the development plan of the fifth council to build the foundation into a compound (operation + funding) foundation with medium scale, standard governance, professional management and domestic and international influence within five years.
SSCLF’s executive vice chairman Zou Wei gave a report titled "Under the banner of Soong Ching Ling, forging ahead in the new era, vigorous innovation and achievements -- The Work Report of the SSCLF’s fifth council." The report is divided into two parts: "Exploration and Effectiveness" and "Experience". The report systematically summarizes that the fifth council has adapted to the new needs of social development and sought actions in social organizations, effectively upgraded public welfare projects and orderly transformed operation modes, and optimized internal governance structure and improved organizational professional competence.
SSCLF’s senior leader Xie Lijuan made an important speech. She was heartily gratified that Soong Ching Ling's public welfare undertakings have been followed by the young people. She said that “We are grateful and we are connected to the public welfare undertakings because the progress of society requires everyone's love and dedication.”
