On the evening of December 7, Shanghai Soong Ching Ling Foundation held the 2019 Hezhong Charity Gala in Crowne Plaza Shanghai.
SSCLF’s Hezhong Public Welfare Special Fund is characterized by inheriting family loving culture and parents and children doing charity together. The charity gala is held for three consecutive years. The money raised has been used in the Soong Ching Ling Children’s Reading Room Public Welfare Project, focusing on the overall development of children in educationally underprivileged areas, and the improvement of children’s self-confidence, kindness and happiness.
The gala brought together people from the cultural and art circles, raising a total of 1,518,760 yuan to support the building of Soong Ching Ling children’s reading rooms of Xinzhuang Primary school in Sipu Town, Suixi County, Anhui Province, and Central Primary School in Bailiang Town, Wanzai County, Jiangxi Province. Also the seven Soong Ching Ling children’s reading rooms completed earlier in Yushu, Qinghai Province, Henan Province and Hebei Province will be maintained.
