The People’s Republic of China accounts for about 1.3 billion people. According to the general statistics in the Republic of China, the city orphanages house more than 16,000 orphaned and abandoned babies not including the ones in the countryside. From these statistics, one can easily see that there is a vast need to be met in in the realm of the orphans, orphanages, and the adoption processes within China.
Knowing the need for orphans and abandoned children to find loving homes, and be provided for with food and adequate medical provisions, Kenneth Yeung, President of Prince of Peace® Enterprises, Inc., set out to gather resources and information on how to help. In 1994, he began to fulfill a long awaited dream in the field of social work. Concurrently with his own adoption experience, he began to take steps to further the United States involvement in helping these needy children and POP’s Foundation was born.
POP – a child’s term for dad. We would like to refer to the Big POP. A God that loves all his children and whom we all can belong. POP’s Foundation was created to bring the love of God to orphans and families. With bilingual abilities, and cultural understanding, we are an organization established to fill various needs in the United States and aid children in China.
Mission of POP’s Foundation:
- To finance the Prince of Peace Children’s Home in Tianjin, in order to have a warm and harmonious environment for growth.
- To help groups affected by wars, calamities and difficulties in life.
- To promote with other organizations that help the adopted children and the needy, in order to develop harmonious societies.
Prince of Peace® Children’s Home
The Prince of Peace Children’s Home (POPCH) is dedicated to serving children with special needs in the Wuqing District of Tianjin, China. It was founded in 2003 by Kenneth Yeung of the POP’s Foundation, in cooperation with the Civil Affairs Bureau of the Wuqing District. This unique joint project – the first officially foreign run children’s home in China – is funded by the POP’s Foundation of USA and managed by World Vision International, China (a world-renowned humanitarian organization).
Over one hundred children call the POPCH home, where they receive the best possible rehabilitation services from dedicated staff. These services are provided by the Children’s Rehabilitation Center (CRC) under the oversight of World Vision. The CRC also provides services to children in the nearby community.
During the past seven years of operation, the Prince of Peace Children’s Home has earned numerous awards at the local, regional and national levels. POPCH was also appointed as the training hub in the areas of special education, rehabilitation and social work service by Ministry of Civil Affairs Management College starting March 2010.
And yet, far more important than any award, has been the deep satisfaction of seeing twenty children placed in families through domestic and foreign adoptions since 2007.
