Project Eden- Children Enjoying Summer Camp

Children, volunteers and sponsors had great fun together in Dongguan during a two day summer camp in August. They had craft activities, played games and had some teaching time on the first day. The next day was spent swimming in the water park and enjoying lunch together. Our thanks to local Dongguan college students for their hard work and for volunteering for this event.  It was a fantastic two days that the children thoroughly enjoyed and will not forget it for a long long time.

A Special Thank you to the generous hotel owner (Sofitel Luxury Hotels, Dongguan) and Aaron (Owner of Treasures of Hope, Dongguan) for organizing this event and supporting us so willingly.
