Charities link-up to aid migrant families

INTERNATIONAL and local charities joined up yesterday to launch a fund to help migrant workers in Shanghai.

The Shanghai Charity Foundation and the United Way Worldwide aim to tackle education, health and poverty issues faced by the city’s migrants.

Programs range from improving childcare to offering community-based elderly care services to dementia sufferers.

This is the first time that the US-based charity group has established a fund in China.

“People can have the chance to fulfill their potential talent only if they receive education, have a stable income and a healthy body,” said Brian Gallagher, the group’s president.

It has 1,800 organizations in 41 countries and regions.
