Costs of Care
As with all organizations our biggest need is for financial support to pay the day-to-day running costs of the homes that we run.
We have four Special Care Centers with a total capacity of over 250 beds. We employ over 300 local people in these units. Our general running costs, covering all of the units, are approximately US$300,000 per month.
Please Contact Us for more information about sending supplies in China.
Note: No fluffy toys or stuffed animals. Due to sanitary reasons and the children’s preferences, these are not useful. Blankets are not needed at this time thanks to much generosity in recent years.

Traveling to Beijing?
We are in need of travelers from the US to Beijing to help bring in much needed supplies for our children. None of these supplies are “restricted items” and do not have to be declared at customs. The items will be mailed to you within the US. New Hope Foundation staff will be at the airport to pick up the supplies in Beijing.
If you live in the US and wish to donate items, receive more information about medical supplies for New Hope Foundation, or if you are (or know of anyone who is) willing to carry donated items to Beijing, please contact the following Supply Coordinator:

Rebecca has coordinated donated supplies in the US since 2001, shortly after meeting Joyce and Robin Hill when they were in the US for two orphans to have surgery there.
