Chongqing Jian’ai Art is a paper-cutting company in Chongqing, China and supplemented by arts production and sales, and a new social enterprise that supports people with hemophilia.
The staff of Jian’ai Art happened upon a small village located on a mountain in Chongqing. It is about 3000 meters above sea level. The temperature is 5-10 centigrade in early October. We saw the children were wearing thin clothes and sandals. The staff felt obliged to do something for them. After communicating with the village chief, Jian’ai Art started to collect old clothes at the end of October.
452 sets of old clothes were collected, of which 243 sets are children's clothes. Clothes were sorted according to their sizes. A thick coat, a pair of pants, a sweater and a pair of long johns were included in a set. All clothes donated had been sterilized in the hospital and were sent to Pifu village on November 4.
Acknowledgement goes to following units for their support.
Volunteers from Chongqing Technological Vocational School, who did sorting, tidying and packaging for the clothes. Though it was hard work, they took the work seriously and worked carefully through the whole process.
Shuangqiao Community Clinic, which provided professional sterilization.
The post office of Yubei District, who helped to post the clothes with a 50% discount. The staff was kind and highly efficient.
We also thank our community and each person who participated in the activity. Thanks to your help, this winter will not be so cold for these children.
