Humanitarian China: a Call for Contributions to Help Dissident Zhao Changqing’s Wife and Children
Mr. Zhao Changqing (赵常青) was a Tiananmen student leader of the Federation of Students from Colleges Outside Beijing in 1989. He has been imprisoned five times for total over 10 years, and is one of the most determined and admired human rights defenders in China. Through courage and endurance, he is among those who have carried on the torch of freedom in China that was ignited in 1989. His pregnant wife Liu Xiaodong (刘晓冬）and their four-year-old son Xiaoxiang escaped to Thailand a couple of months ago; with help from several parties, the mother and son arrived in San Francisco recently. We are immensely pleased to welcome her to safety and to the caring friendship in the United States, but humanitarian relief for the mother and children is only just beginning.
Liu Xiaodong is going to give birth in August, and she needs long-term assistance with housing, caring for her children, healthcare, transportation, daily expenses, and translation. As such, Humanitarian China initiates this special-purpose fundraising program for Liu Xiaodong, making an earnest appeal to all compassionate people to lend support to Zhao Changqing’s wife, son, and the soon-to-be-born baby:
1) Humanitarian China guarantees to fund-match: whatever is donated to the Liu Xiaodong fund, we’ll contribute the same amount.
2) Humanitarian China will provide receipts to donors for tax deduction;
3) Humanitarian China will provide updates about the progress of the fundraising drive;
4) The donations raised in this relief effort will be used only to support expenses of Zhao Changqing’s wife and children in the United States;
5) The fundraising drive starts now, and will conclude on July 20, 2017.
Humanitarian China is a non-profit organization based in the Bay Area, California. It was founded in 2007 by activists who participated in the 1989 democracy movement in Beijing and overseas, and in the same year was granted tax-exempt status in the United States as a 501(c)3 organization.
