Danzhai, China (29 March 2018) – Wanda Hotels & Resorts, in cooperation with Beijing Stars and Rain Education Institute for Autism, held a charity event to raise awareness about autism in children, inviting 20 autistic children together with their parents. Jianhua Zhu, Managing Director of Disabled Persons’ Foundation, Qiandongnan Prefecture, and Dr. Jeff Ning, President of Wanda Hotels & Resorts, attended this event.
Professor Zhongkai Sun from Beijing Stars and Rain Education Institute for Autism started the morning with a detailed introduction of children’s autism, and elaborated on the importance of special education for them. He also presented the audience with the progress of “Stars and Rain – Wanda Classroom,” which was initiated by both parties with a purpose to offer support to families by helping parents better understand autistic children’s behavior.
Instructors from Center for Children with Special Needs in Qiandongnan gave a live performance, followed by Professor Sun’s speech, to bring awareness of autism in children and call upon everyone’s participation in offering equal opportunity as well as welcoming their full involvement in society on an equal basis with others. The event ended on a loving note as children of Wanda Jin Hotspring Danzhai’s employees interacted with those 20 children with special needs by painting together on top of a gift exchange session.
Founded on 3 June 2012 by Wanda Hotels & Resorts and authorized by the China Charity Federation, Wanda Children’s Foundation is fully committed to providing comprehensive care for children with special needs. On 23 July 2012, “Wanda Children’s Cinema” was established as the kick-off project of Wanda Children’s Foundation. This project is focused on setting up cinemas for schools with financial difficulties in China’s poor areas and has successfully built 100 cinemas as of July 2017.
Following the commitment of the kick-off project, Wanda Children’s Foundation collaborates with Beijing Stars and Rain Education Institute for Autism, China’s first NGO service for children with autism, offering systematical and professional education (“Stars and Rain – Wanda Classroom”) for 250 autistic children from five cities in China for a 12-month period starting from August 2017. Sponsored by Wanda Hotels & Resorts, this collaborative program is part of efforts to improve parents’ understanding of autism education as well as helping children with their peer social interactions, and finally social engagement.
