Philip Hayden Foundation

Partners In Hope

Over the past 15 years, China has worked diligently to improve orphan care in government-run orphanages. As a result, the number of domestic adoptions has steadily increased, and fewer children have been abandoned – although more than 96% of the orphans in China have special needs. In spite of China’s significant progress, these children still need our help.

One other requirement changed as well – to encourage each province to provide for their own orphans, the children are now required to receive care in their own province. This means that while orphanages can receive help from non-government organizations (NGOs), children must still reside in their own province. Philip Hayden Foundation is an NGO, which means that any child residing on our campus near Beijing must be from Tianjin.

Our mission is to provide compassionate medical care, therapy and education to orphans in China – and that’s unchanged. But the type of resources needed for these vulnerable children has changed – and so have the methods to effectively meet those needs. At this time, our Child Sponsorship Program is ending. The children have lived in their province of origin for more than a year, and it has become much more challenging to stay individually connected with them, as the policies in China continue to evolve.
