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 July 2019, the new President of the SCLCFC, Lynda Liu, attended a 3-day forum on “Renovation and Innovation of Soong Ching Ling Spirit” held in Shanghai, China. The forum was attended by over 100 representatives from within China, and by 19 other representatives from 8 different countries. At the forum, the attendees learned about new educational initiatives in China, as well as some of the work being done to help children in other countries, e.g. South Africa. In Lynda’s words, “The forum was quite successful. It provided a platform for us to share ideas and experiences. The collaborative effort allows us to improve our work to better education for children all over the world.”
Over one hundred and fifty friends of the Foundation attended the 2018 Soong Ching Ling Children’s Foundation Fundraising Dinner on Sep 27, 2018. Highlights of the event include Director Nina Halpern’s impassioned presentation about the children we help in both Canada and China and Director Howard Chu’s tribute to our founder Mrs. Eileen Lin on behalf of the Board. The over $32,000 CAD raised from the event will allow us continue our work for the children. Many thanks to all our supporters. Follow this link to learn more
