We are a group of Chinese and expatriate volunteers living and working in Nanjing (around 20 active volunteers plus many more supporters). There are two more teams operating in Guangzhou and Chengdu.
Current Chair Person Nanjing: Ellen Wieck-Mesarosch, Hospital Coordinator: Gao Mei
After starting in 2003 in Nanjing, Hopeful Hearts created a second team in Chengdu in 2009. In 2012 Hopeful Hearts Guangzhou started.
Across the 3 regional teams, Hopeful Hearts has now supported over 700 cases!
Members of our team visit and interview every family that applies to us for help, to ascertain if, and to what extent we should fund their surgery. In this way we decide exactly how our funds are spent.
