The International China Concern put on their fourth annual Circle of Hope Dinner last week, which featured a performance by award-winning violinist and ICC Ambassador, Ning Kam.

 

Guests were soothed by Steinway music played by members of the Steinway Society of British Columbia’s Young Artist Program as they made their way into the Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club for the intimate dining experience.

 

After her performance, Kam shared her story about the transformation she went through during her time spent in China.

 

Since its creation in 1993, the International China Concern has worked close with the Chinese government to help in six ways: Rescuing abandoned children, providing nourishment and shelter, searching for education opportunities, finding surgeries for children who require it, the prevention of future abandonment, and establishing training programs to help raise the standards of care.

 

Late in 2014, ICC’s Hengyang project was able to move into a highly-anticipated new building, which led to the welcoming of 26 additional children into the ICC family.
