NEW PROJECT: The Captivating Healthy Village Program kicks off

Following an amazing Annual Charity Auction in October, RMB 186K (US$30.5K) was immediately forwarded to one of our partner NPO’s in Qinghai to commence a new project in Western China we are excited about – The Captivating Healthy Village Program.

On November 8, our medical team left to visit the first of what will be 10 villages over the next 2 months.  Over 1,000 adults and children, including what we expect to be 200 expectant mothers from 10 villages in Southern and Eastern Qinghai will receive three days of health training on critical health topics, a free health inspection by qualified doctors from Xining, and some minor treatment.  With training provided by visiting medical professionals, this program aims to help improve infant mortality rates, educate on women’s health issues and infectious diseases not normally discussed as part of this culture, and encourage locals to seek more regular medical support.  Visiting program staff will also talk to village leaders about other pressing needs in their villages with a specific focus on child related desperate cases.  On a case-by-case basis, Captivating will then consider whether we can change the futures of such children as part of another new initiative – the Emergency Medical and Scholarship Program.  If you would like more details about either the Healthy Village or Emergency Medical and Scholarship programs, please contact andrewc@captivating.org directly.

Our huge thanks to supporters of our Annual Shenzhen based Captivating Charity Auction (held October of each year) and also to Greg Shultheis and the Shenzhen Midnight Charity Race who have underwritten the Emergency Medical and Scholarship Program.  We will enjoy sharing the future stories of changed lives through both these initiatives.
