This project gives you the opportunity to make a difference where it is most needed, whilst exploring one of the most successful and modern cities in China: Shanghai. As a volunteer, you will be staying in an orphanage center, located in a children’s hospital, where the injured and sick orphans are sent to receive better medical treatment. These children arrive from other orphanages in rural areas of China and with your love and care you can help them through their recovery.
Assist with daily operations: preparing food, serving meals, cleaning, and arranging activities for the children.
Assist in teaching the center staff improve their English, so that they can better communicate with adoptive families from overseas.
