Aid for Survivors of China Orphanage Fire

We were saddened to learn of a fire in a private orphanage in Henan, China which killed 6 children and a 20 year old man last Friday. Investigators determined that the fire was caused accidentally by children. To read more, click here.

Gladney’s Vice President of Asia Programs, Gongzhan Wu, is currently in China and plans to visit with officials in Henan, next week. He would like to present humanitarian aid from Gladney Center and families, for the care of the children as they recover from this tragedy and transition to another orphanage. Gongzhan previously had the opportunity to meet the government officials and orphanage directors from this province in the United States during recent NCFA/CCCWA training tours.

If you would like to contribute to this effort, you can do so on Gladney’s website (click here). In the Designation field, please select “other” and type in “Henan Aid” in the “Other” box.

All donations, large or small will be greatly appreciated. Please email Wendy Stanley at with any questions.

Thank you in advance,
The Gladney Asia Program Staff
