43 needy students get scholarships from hospital, charity

Taiwan-based Shanghai Landseed International Hospital, the nation's first solely overseas-invested hospital, joined with the Shanghai Sunrise Foundation to collect 129,000 yuan (US$20,806) within one month to help with the schooling of needy high school students in the city.

The foundation is a charity organization set up by expatriates in the city.

A total of 43 students received scholarships yesterday. Each student can receive 3,000 yuan to pay for a year of tuition.

The effort is expected to become a long-term charity program since the hospital plans to sponsor 14 talented, underprivileged students for three years of high school, Shanghai Landseed said.
