Our Needs

Financial needs

As with all organizations our biggest need is for financial support to pay the day-to-day running costs of the homes that we run.

We have five centers: Beijing; Jiaozuo; Luoyang; Xinyang; and Zheng Zhou. The total capacity of all these units is 360 beds. We employ over 600 local people in these units. Our general running costs, covering all of the units, are approximately US$300,000 per month.

For details on to how to help us financially, please visit our Donations page.

 

Sponsor a child

We have a program that enables you to sponsor a child, as well as a name a baby.

Visit our Sponsorship page for more information.

 

Personal support

Dr Joyce and Robin Hill are the founders of New Hope Foundation and do not take any income from the funds donated to help the babies in their care. If you would like to support their personal income then this can be done through the normal donation channels clearly showing “personal support for the Hill’s” or you can contact them directly at robin@hopefosterhome.com.

Donors and Travelers: We Need You!

We are in need of travelers from the US, UK, and Australia to Beijing to help bring in much needed supplies for our children. None of these supplies are “restricted items” and do not have to be declared at customs. The items will be mailed to you within the country. New Hope Foundation staff will be at the airport to pick up the supplies in Beijing.

If you live in any of these 3 countries and wish to donate items, receive more information about medical supplies for New Hope Foundation, or if you are (or know of anyone who is) willing to carry donated items to Beijing, please contact the following Supply Coordinators:
