Helping Orphans Worldwide (HOW) is pleased to be the recipient of a $15,000 grant from the Chao Foundation and Transparent Fish Fund. The funds have been granted to support HOW's Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) program. EB is a rare genetic skin disease that causes the skin to be so fragile that the slightest friction can cause severe blistering inside and outside the body. Today there is no cure, but HOW is working with local doctors and nurses to provide wound care, education and medical supplies.
The grant will also go towards the implementation of a new project to support individuals suffering from Leprosy. HOW's Moringatree program aims to start with helping people living with Leprosy to have a healthier life, and hopes to eventually help thousands who are malnourished reach sustainability. This is the third consecutive year HOW has received a grant from the Chao Foundation and Transparent Fish Fund.

About Chao Foundation
The Ping and Amy Chao Family Foundation was founded in California’s Silicon Valley in 2005 by Ping Chao and his wife Amy. The foundation was established to fund nonprofit and public welfare initiatives that (1) improve children’s health in developing countries; and (2) nurture a spirit of philanthropy among the younger generation in China and of the greater Chinese Diaspora. While the Chao Foundation is based in the Bay Area and has local projects, many of its programs focus on developing countries in East Asia, from China and Cambodia to Vietnam.
