We recently received this announcement from the Taiwanese Chamber of Commerce of Greater Salt Lake and would like to share it with you:
We are honored to have a group of orphans from Africa to come here to perform for free at Jordan High School in Sandy on 7/28.
The group will perform Chinese and African songs, dance, and Chinese martial arts
We need you or your PTA’s help to spread the word to your students and their families to come and watch this free performance to support these kids.
Here is a little background about this group:
These African orphans are sponsored and cared for by the Amitofo Charity Center, a Taiwanese charity in Africa.
The Amitofo Care Center (A.C.C.) (Amitofo Charity Center), which is comprised of an administration center, children’s dormitories, youth dormitories, preparatory school, kindergarten, library, activity center, medical center, vocational training center, religious center, CBO, etc. is founded and directed by Buddhist clergy from the East with an aspiration and mission to directly rear and care for orphans of Africa within the humanitarian and educational umbrella.
ACC’s compassionate and philanthropic foot-prints have been left not only in South Africa but also in Malawi, Lesotho, Swaziland, Lilongwe, Namibia, Mozambique, Bloemfontein, etc. As well as Taiwan, Hong Kong, Mainland China, Singapore, Malaysia, and several United State countries. The total of orphans that ACC has adopted to date number around 8,000.
