The Soong Ching Ling Children's Foundation of Canada is dedicated to improving the education, health and welfare of children in both China and Canada. It upholds the spirit of international cooperation that was personified by Soong Ching Ling (1893-1981), who received international acclaim for her dedication to the emancipation of the Chinese people from domestic and foreign oppression and for her tireless efforts to better the lives of Chinese children.
In response to the COVID-19 induced school shutdown, the Foundation worked with the community schools we support to address the most pressing needs facing the students. At Tupper School, we repurposed $3,500 funding to support food security for the students and their families; at Britannia School, we made available $36,000 to procure 120 new chromebooks for students who otherwise are not able to benefit from remote learning due to lack of resources. Follow this link to learn more.Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 the Foundation has had to cancel its plan for an annual fundraising dinner in the summer of 2020. We are working on alternatives to replenish spent funds so as to continue meeting needs facing children --- please stay tuned. In the meantime, if you can help, please follow this link to make a financial donation for the children.
