WHAO & LGW: HUNGER RELIEF PROGRAM

Traditionally, Christmas is the one day in the year when family members gather together to be with each other and celebrate the holidays. While family activities are very lively inside, outside on the street, in the malls, restaurants, and other establishments are very quiet..In many corners of the world, people are faced with many difficulties, such as not having anything to eat.Every day, many parents around the world are trying to find more nutritious meals for their children. According to the latest data from the WFP/United Nations World Food Program, there are still 815 million people (one-ninth of the world’s population) who are hungry and who go to sleep without food every night. The malnourished population is more than one third of the world's total population. This shows that there is a massive gap between the rich and the poor and eradicating hunger and malnutrition is a major challenge in our time. The consequences of inadequate food or improper diet are not only related to health problems, but also has negative effects on education and employment.On December 12, 2018, WHAO/World Human Accountability and LGW/Legion of Good Will jointly hosted the "Giving Back for Christmas" event. After more than a month of fundraising and planning, the two organizations distributed 250 Christmas baskets in in Newark, New Jersey area, which included nutrition-balanced food and blankets for overcoming the winter.The beneficiaries were children living in the homeless shelter of Newark, and the neglected children in Newark Public Schools, and low-income families. The campaign came as a result after analysis by the two organizations on the number of people in need in the area during the holiday season.In 2015, the United Nations launched 17 global Sustainable Development Goals aimed at improving the lives of the people of the world by 2030. Sustainable Development Goal #2 – Zero Hunger – is a commitment to eradicating hunger, achieving food security, improving nutrition and promoting sustainable agriculture, which is a priority for the UN World Food Programme and one of the major mission of most non-profit organizations.On the day of the event, more than ten staff members and volunteers worked together, counted all the donated foods, packaged, and distributed them under eight hours of work. Every Christmas baskets showcased the caring and generosity of the donors, staff, and volunteers. The moment these food baskets and blankets reached the hands of the recipients a sudden burst of excitement and happiness filed the room. The children were happy with bright smile and ready to dance. Though these gift baskets are a temporary solution to a bigger problem, they contribute to a better holiday season for these families.[Behind the scenes]:Volunteers of WHAO, Xiao & CarolinaSocial Media Assistant of WHAO, Hudjy DolceProject Manager and Designer of WHAO, Qihan DongWHAO & LGWPerhaps humans cannot truly eradicate poverty in the foreseeable future, eliminating poverty and reducing hunger is a long-term goal, but all our current efforts at least make poverty more bearable.If we want to see a world without hunger by 2030, governments, citizens, civil society and the private sector must work together to invest, innovate and develop lasting solutions.We would love to invite more people to join us. You can participate as a volunteer or by donating money/food. We are looking forward to meeting you!Hope every year, there will be less hunger during Christmas.Please follow us on social media :-)Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/whao.org/ Twitter:https://twitter.com/un_whao?lang=en Instagram: whao_org

WHAO & LGW: EQUALITY IN EDUCATION PROGRAM

The World Human Accountability Organization and the Legion of Good Will teamed up for 2018’s Backpacks for a Bright Future campaign that took place in Newark, New Jersey on September 12, 2018. The campaign aimed to provide children from local homeless shelters and low-income families in the Newark, New Jersey area with backpacks filled with brand-new school supplies. This year’s goal was to distribute over 300 backpacks. The campaign aims to boosts new school year with new school supplies for the disadvantaged children, eliminating the deprivation and violence that many students face in the absence of adequate learning tools. Both organizations hope to provide children from low-income families with the necessary school supplies to help them embrace the new school year with a positive attitude and sense of openness to all kinds of possibilities that can be achieved through education. We are dedicated to providing a fair chance for every child around the world.60 Children from homeless shelters in Newark were the first group of beneficiaries. Not only did they receive backpacks, they were also invited to participate in various activities and games where they played to win. These activities promoted strengthening leadership skills and operating as a team player.The children were treated to a fun-filled unforgettable day that consisted of snacks, face painting, music, games and new school supplies. Members and volunteers of Legion of Good Will and WHAO set up different stations that catered to the children's diverse scope of interests, such as Face Painting, Pretzels & Marshmallows Game, Chopsticks Finger Game, Musical Chairs Game, Food & Drinks, and I Have A Dream Stations, etc. All booths ultimately led to each child receiving a backpack filled with tools they need to succeed in their educational pursuits. The games and activities were included to encourage each child to have a healthy self-esteem, and to develop strong self-motivation and character.Both organizations worked together in planning, raising funds, gathering donations, organizing activities, and distributing the backpacks.

TORCH FESTIVAL IN LIANGSHAN

Liangshan Area of Sichuan Province is the largest settlement of the Yi people in China. On June 24th of the lunar calendar every year, the Liangshan Yi compatriots must wear festive costumes, sing, dance, and host large-scale beauty contests. This day holds plenty of activities from horse racing and wrestling, to archery and other competitions. The tradition includes igniting torches in the wilderness to commemorate their heroes. It is believed that ghosts protect the safety of people and animals. The Liangshan Yi Torch Festival is one of the first intangible cultural heritage lists published in China. It is one of China's top ten folk festivals. It has been included in the “2010 World Intangible Cultural Heritage Approval Project” held by UNESCO. The chairman of World Human Accountability Organization, Mr. Youyu Zhu, and the head of the Butuo County Health Center, Ms. Deng, launched the Liangshan Workstation. Through this workstation, several orphans and mountain children will receive financial support until they complete their university studies. The Liangshan adoption program is one of WHAO’s many ongoing programs. WHAO hopes to expand the project through cooperation and provide assistance to a larger number of children.On July 18, 2018, on the eve of the Torch Festival, Ms. Deng visited children who lived in the remote orphan school in Butuo County, Liangshan. Ms. Deng noted that she had seen so many of the same children since her last visit. "These are the children of Luogu Elementary School we visited last time. Orphans, they can't go home after a holiday, just at school,” she said.“When I arrived at the entrance of the orphanage, I saw a small figure standing in the darkness and waiting quietly. When I saw it, I saw a child who was long-term adopted by WHAO. His name is Ji Huocong, a 10-year-old boy. When he was 5 years old, he was unfortunate enough to experience the death of his parents’” Ms. Deng recalled. She shared how the boy lived independently since he was young due to losing his parents at five years old. He kept afloat by helping neighbors do farm work, assisting with cattle and sheep, and living alone in a small room in Butuo County. Many children between the ages of six and nine have been found living alone under similar conditions. Soon after meeting him, WHAO adopted him when he was nine years old. He is currently attending Liangshan Luogu Primary School.(WHAO sponsors Jihuo Zicong since 2017, a 10-year-old boy who lived independently for almost 4 years from 5-9 years old)(Children from the WHAO's Adoption Program)Ms. Deng brought and distributed new clothes, school uniforms, living and school supplies, and fresh food to the orphanage.The next day, the day of the Torch Festival, Ms. Deng took the children to the hospital for a health class and taught them essential hygiene and civility skills. The staff of the WHAO Liangshan Workstation then presented the donated materials which included stationery, clothes, shoes and much more to the children.Ms Deng invited the children to have a meal and celebrate the Yi Torch Festival. She is like a mother to the children at the orphanage. She brings the children warmth and care and she constantly plants seeds of love in the young hearts that have been hurt.Ms. Deng dresses the children with brand new clothes and brought them to the city center, waiting for the performance of the Torch Festival with all the villagers of Liangshan. WHAO helps children to build new experiences, and let them feel equal to other children, learn about the cultural heritage in a festive atmosphere, and to feel the love and warmth of people from all over the world.
