USANA’s China subsidiary, BabyCare, recently hosted the Angel Heart Project conference in Beijing. The conference aimed to celebrate the achievement of the project, and to draw awareness to children’s congenital heart disease. Representatives from China Poverty Alleviation Office, National Health and Family Planning Commission, and China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation (CFPA) showed their support by attending the conference and awarding BabyCare the charity souvenir.
“Our government and party have emphasized the importance of poverty relief,” said Jun Wang, Deputy Secretary General from CFPA. “Through partnership with corporations like BabyCare, we have worked together on helping children with congenital heart disease in undeveloped areas and effectively improved poor families’ healthcare situations.”
Congenital heart disease can be fatal for children, especially from underprivileged families, due to the inability to pay for surgeries needed to cure them. In the past two years, the Angel Heart Project has raised over 6 million RMB and helped 215 children recover from congenital heart disease. Because of the project, 215 families have been able to lead a normal, happy life.
“With the corporate culture of giving back in mind, BabyCare will continue to help more people in need in the future,” said Frank Li, Vice President of Sales at BabyCare.
To honor the efforts and accomplishment that BabyCare has made for the Angel Heart Project, Su Meng from China Poverty Alleviation Office and Xiaowei Hou from the National Health and Family Planning Commission awarded BabyCare the charity souvenir.
Earlier this year, BabyCare was awarded the “Outstanding Contribution Award”—along with Disney, Unilever, JP Morgan and other prominent companies—for its contributions to China’s poverty alleviation and public welfare undertakings.
