After starting in 2003 in Nanjing, Hopeful Hearts created a second team in Chengdu in 2009. In 2012 Hopeful Hearts Guangzhou started.

Across the 3 regional teams, Hopeful Hearts has now supported over 530 cases! In 2018 Hopeful Hearts Guangzhou supported 21 children.

Members of our team visit and interview every family that applies to us for help, to ascertain if, and to what extent we should fund their surgery. In this way we decide exactly how our funds are spent.
