Latest news from Mifan Mama and Shining Star!
What do we do?
I'm hungry" were the words that led to the founding of Mifan Mama in 2008. They were spoken to a foreign lady by a little girl who was in need of food. To make sure that the response was an ongoing effort and not just a 'one off' Mifan Mama was formed. Mifan Mama went on to supply basic food items and so much more to that orphange for over three years.
From that time Mifan Mama has grown, and are able to provide food, clothing, educational support, medical support and equipment to orphanages in six provinces in China, we also support groups in Shanghai where needed.
Making a Real Difference to Real Lives.
Just a few of the things that Mifan Mama has achieved are:
- Funding surgery and ongoing care has improved the quality of life for many children, heart surgeries and eye surgeries being the most frequent needs.
- At Shining Star we have helped children see better, hear, repaired hearts and helped them learn about the world.
- Supporting education has empowered young people and allowed them to study at high schools and colleges.
How can you help make a difference?
None of this would have been possible without the wonderful people who have supported us over the years. Mifan Mama has relied on its volunteers, donors and supporters to go from strength to strength.
You can help provide full tummies, warmth, comfort and hope to kids in lots of different ways. We always need volunteers, food and money to continue to fund care and education.
