An Amazing Year!

Every year that Heart to Heart is able to save even one child’s life through heart surgery is a great year.  By that measure 2019 was an AMAZING year – by far our best year ever!  In 2018 we sponsored 159 children for heart surgery which was around a 20% increase over any year before.  In 2019 it seemed like we were working really hard.  I couldn’t figure it out – We had a great team in place and everyone was doing their fair share, but the work seemed relentless.  Then I started looking at what was happening.  Oh my!  Heart to Heart was able to sponsor 238 surgeries in 2019 – a 50% increase!  We also dedicated 16 more rural school libraries and 9 new rural school sports packages.  It’s staggering that we were able to achieve that AND provide all the services to our sponsored families that we do — donated goods to help them with their stay in the hospital, meal assistance at the hospital, care and love in the playroom, etc. The love and commitment to our families from Heart to Heart is something none of them will ever forget.  Coupled with the heart surgery, they will never look at life the same again.  So, it wasn’t really a 50% increase in work, it was a 50% increase in love and devotion to people who really needed and appreciated it.

Each and every one of you associated with H2H in ANY capacity should be extremely proud of what we’ve achieved.  Our goals couldn’t have been reached without your work, commitment, and donations.  You may not think you’ve done a lot, but you make it all happen. It takes all of us working together.  So ….. Thank you to all our sponsors!  Your generosity is humbling.  Nothing H2H does could happen at all without donations coming in!  And a big thank you to our teams – admin, assembly, events, finance team, group volunteering, knitting team, management, marketing, newsletter, on-line projects, photography, playroom, project management, school liaison, sewing, sponsorship and video.  It’s your love and commitment that makes it all happen.   And a huge thanks to Yoda Hospital, Nancy Kong and Wang Lin!  You are our unsung heroes!  And, of course, none of this could happen without Joyce and Warm at Rende Foundation!   We have the best volunteers – from all over the world and from all walks of life!  Thank you for doing all of this with no thoughts of pay or reimbursement.  Thank you for the love you show our sponsored children and families without thought of personal gain.  Your dedication to the goals of Heart to Heart is inspiring.

I hope all of you will continue to contribute in some way to H2H in 2020.  Let’s make the Year of the Rat another amazing year for the children of China!  Happy New Year!

对心连心来说,即使每年通过资助能挽救一个孩子的生命,都可谓是成功的。比照这个标准,2019年是令人惊叹的,也是心连心迄今为止最棒的一年! 在2018年,我们资助了159名儿童进行了心脏手术,这比之前最好的一年还要多20%。回顾2019年,我的第一印象是,我们团队似乎工作的更辛苦,我起初有些不解—我们明明有一个高效的志愿者团队,每个人都各尽其职,为什么还这么累呢?当看到数据分析后我才明白:天哪!心连心在2019年一共资助了238个儿童手术,较去年又增加了50%!与此同时,我们还得以资助了16个乡村学校图书馆和9个乡村学校体育运动包。不仅如此,心连心还向资助的儿童家庭提供了更为人性化的关爱服务:捐赠住院所需生活用品,提供膳食援助,在医院的活动室提供儿童陪伴和关爱等等。我相信,每一个家庭都永远不会忘记心连心对他们付出的爱和奉献。再加上成功的心脏手术,他们一定会用崭新的目光去面对未来。所以,这50%并不仅是志愿者们工作量的增加,而是心连心对孩子们的爱和奉献的增加。

我们每一位与心连心有交集的各位,都应该为以上的成就感到无比自豪。如果没有你们的辛苦付出、投入和慷慨捐赠,我们就不可能实现目标。或许你们并没有自居其功,但正是因为你们的付出才有了我们的成就。请允许我感谢我们所有的赞助方!如果没有捐赠,心连心将一事无成!非常感谢我们的志愿者团队:行政、后勤集会、活动、财务、团体志愿服务、编织、管理层、新闻、线上项目、摄影、儿童活动室、项目管理、学校联络、缝纫、赞助商和视频团队,是你们的爱和无私奉献让这一切发生。非常感谢上海远大心胸医院的孔楠和王林!你们是我们的无名英雄!当然,如果没有仁德基金会的Joyce和Warm两位成员,这一切都不可能发生!我们有来自世界各地各行各业的最好的志愿者!谢谢你们在毫无报酬下的无私奉献!谢谢你们不计较个人得失,对我们赞助的孩子和家庭的无私的爱。你们对心连心使命的全心全意的奉献精神令人鼓舞。

我希望在2020年,你们继续以各种方式为心连心做出贡献,让我们在鼠年为中国的孩子们创造又一个神奇的一年!祝大家新年快乐!

Goodbye Message from Wilge Wedel

Dear H2H team.  When I arrived in Shanghai in February 2015, I found a German knitting group which knitted sweaters for teddy bears. That sounded good for me. But I asked myself why are they knitting sweaters for teddy bears? Now I know… I really enjoyed knitting sweaters, sewing nice dresses, preparing the orders, and last but not least selling the bears at markets. All the collected money gave children a new life. I saw their recovery after their heart surgeries. Later I visited the children and families in their villages during field trips. These were very special and emotional moments for me. I hope, that H2H will continue this welfare project to save future children’s lives.  It was my great pleasure to support H2H.  You all do an outstanding job!    Wilge Wedel – Back to Germany in December 2019

亲爱的心连心志愿者们,2015年2月我从德国来到上海,听说了一个专为泰迪熊编织毛衣的德国人群体,这对初来乍到的我来说是个好消息,而我也非常好奇:他们为什么要为泰迪熊织毛衣?现在我全明白了…… 这5年来,我非常享受为小熊织毛衣、缝制漂亮的服饰,准备订单,最后再将爱心小熊带到集市上出售这整个过程,所有售卖所得给予了先心病儿童们新的生命。我目睹了孩子们心脏手术后的康复,数月后,我又前往他们的家乡探访术后的孩子和他们的家庭,对我来说,留下了许多令人难忘和感动的回忆。最后,我衷心希望心连心团队将这个慈善项目继续下去,以拯救未来更多儿童的生命。能为心连心付出我感到非常荣幸,你们每一位都做得很出色!薇歌·韦德尔——2019年12月返回德国

Goodbye from Stefanie Sauer

I have been in Shanghai since 2014 and soon after discovering my new home town, I looked for a meaningful activity.  My way led me to H2H, where I found wonderful people, who like to devote their time and help people in need.  After going to the assembly on Tuesdays I realized, the bears have fabulous knitted outfits in a huge variety, but no sewn clothes. Meanwhile came in an order of 500 bathrobes which led to an idea to set up a sewing group.  This was the kick-off!  Since then, passionate volunteers have cut, sewn and assembled for 3 years making outfits according to seasons.  A huge thank you to all, who made it possible.  Marie will be leading the group from now on. I am happy to hand over the project to her.

In December I’m going back to Germany.  I know that in Germany  there are people who are supporting H2H as well.  I’m looking forward to keeping in touch.   It’s time for me to say goodbye, but I want to add:  Keep on going!    Stefanie Sauer, December 2019

从2014年起,我就来上海生活了。来到这片新的土地,我开始寻找一些有意义的事。命运把我带到了心连心这个志愿者组织,在这里我遇到了很多出色的人,他们甘愿奉献自己的时间和精力去帮助那些有需要的人。 在参加了周二的后勤集会后,我发现爱心小熊有各种各样漂亮的针织、编织服装,却没有裁剪缝制的衣服。与此同时,心连心接到一个500件爱心小熊的订单,由此我产生了成立缝纫小组的想法。这是一个全新的开始!从那以后,热情的志愿者们根据季节裁剪、缝制不同款式的小熊服装,一做就是3年。在此我非常感谢所有把这个想法变成现实的志愿者们。因为我即将离开中国,所以从现在起,玛丽女士将领导缝纫小组,我也很乐意把这个项目交接给她。 12月我就回德国了,据我所知在德国也有热心人士在持续支持心连心,我也期待着和大家保持联系。该说再见了,我只想说,让我们共同前进!

The St. Andrew’s Ball Benefitted Heart to Heart

The St Andrew’s Ball is an important date for all supporters of the British Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai and for anyone of British descent that likes to have a great night out.  The ball was held this year at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in the Jinmao Tower on a miserable cold, damp winter’s night.  But Scots have a reputation for fun and rowdiness and they didn’t disappoint. From the outset they were intent on creating fun and getting to know as many people as possible. They had a photo booth complete with sheep and Scottish Terriers and were more than happy to take some warming whiskey shots on arrival. Between entrée and main course, there was the ceremony of cutting the Haggis with the chef. They even had a Scottish Band “Whisky Kiss” fly over just for the night and they kept the crowd jumping, especially after a beautiful rendition of their much-loved national anthem.

Heart to Heart (H2H) was the very special guest of the St Andrew’s Ball 2019.  The British Chamber Outreach Committee, led by Howard Whiteson, selected H2H as the sole beneficiary. From the British Chamber’s generosity earlier in the year, 6 children were able to have their much-needed corrective surgery from H2H. Therese Burke attended on behalf of H2H and was asked to present the H2H mission to 350 very loud and jolly guests. The work of H2H speaks for itself, however, and the room was mesmerised by our video detailing all the aspects of the many things we do under H2H.  Howard then successfully got the crowd going and the support that opened up for H2H was overwhelming. As well as selling out of Christmas bears, the guests generously donated enough cash to sponsor more than another full sponsorship and many new volunteers were also recruited. All in all, it was a very successful night!  H2H is incredibly grateful for the generosity and support of the outreach committee of The British Chamber of Commerce, as we continue to save lives and change futures with their help.

圣安德鲁舞会对上海英国商会的所有支持者以及喜欢在外度过美好夜晚的英国后裔来说,都是一个重要的日子。今年的舞会在上海金茂君悦大酒店举行,尽管时值寒冷潮湿的冬夜,但是以“有趣、爱热闹”著称的苏格兰人并没有对此失望。从晚会一开始,他们就竭尽全力制造乐趣和结识尽可能多的朋友。现场设置了一个布满绵羊和苏格兰猎犬的摄影处,嘉宾们抵达后一口饮尽威士忌并合影留念。在主菜上来之前,还有一个和厨师一起切苏格兰羊杂碎的仪式。他们甚至还邀请了一支名为“威士忌之吻”的苏格兰乐队飘洋过海来庆祝,让来宾们不停地跳舞,尤其是在他们备受喜爱的国歌被美妙地演绎之后。 上海心连心是2019年圣安德鲁舞会的特别嘉宾。英国商会外联委员会最高领导霍华德·怀特森选择了心连心作为本次活动的唯一慈善受益方。在英国商会今年的慷慨捐助下,6名贫困儿童得以从心连心合作医院接受了急需的先天性心脏病矫正手术。志愿者特蕾莎·伯克女士代表心连心参加了这次活动,并向350位来宾们介绍了心连心的使命。 一段视频向我们展示了这些年来心连心为中国的先心病儿童手术付出的辛勤劳动和贡献,也让在场的所有人为之感动,一股暖流顿时在整个房间蔓延开来。接着在霍华德先生的热心呼吁下,现场对心连心的支持热度达到了高潮。除了卖光所有的圣诞小熊,来宾们还慷慨捐赠了现金以资助更多的儿童心脏病手术,同时心连心也招募到了一些新的志愿者。总而言之,这是一个成功的夜晚!心连心非常感谢英国商会外联委员会的慷慨和支持,因为在他们的帮助下,我们将继续拯救生命和改变未来。

 Children Helping ChildrenIt was an unlikely scene for an art auction, but Xiaobo’s children’s art studio had just that at the end of November.  Children and parents were seated together reviewing the lovely hand-painted silk scarves that the children and Xiaobo had painted to sell for Heart to Heart.  I have to say that the scarves far exceeded my expectations;  they were beautiful, fanciful and just plain fun!  Xiaobo is working with a talented bunch of kids.  I even ended up bidding (and winning) one myself.  Children helping children is a beautiful thing – lots of pocket money changed hands.  Many children outbid each other to get their favorites.  And in the end, the children raised RMB 13,000 for Heart to Heart.  Thank you Xiaobo and your lovely art students!  H2H Child #1576 Zhang Shenyu has been able to have his surgery because of your efforts.

这本不是艺术品拍卖,但11月底,白墨的儿童艺术工作室却做到了。那天孩子们和他们的父母坐在一起,欣赏由白墨和学生为心连心捐赠而制作的手绘丝巾,我不得不说,那些丝巾远远超出了我的预期!它们很漂亮,富于幻想,也很有童趣!这一件件作品全部出自白墨和一群有艺术才华的孩子们,我在拍卖过程中也赢得了一件。孩子帮助孩子是一件美好的事情——许多零花钱体现了价值。孩子们争先恐后的喊出比对方更高的价格,以获取他们最喜欢的作品。最后,这些孩子筹集到了13,000元人民币捐赠给了“心连心”。谢谢白墨和你可爱的学生们!心连心第1576号孩子张沈宇因为你们努力,已经可以做手术了。

H2H Welcomes DeltaHealth Hospital into the H2H Family

Helping children get the heart surgery they need for congenital heart disease is H2H’s mission.  Our reach was officially expanded this month with our first surgery being performed by Dr. Sun at DeltaHealth in Minhang.  It’s an amazing, beautiful new hospital that is an unlikely setting for underprivileged  children to have their heart surgeries, but DeltaHealth is committed to helping.  Our first little patient was 5 year old Shen Jinming from Jilin province.  After birth Shen Jinming’s face was always blue.  When he was 3 days old, his parents took him to a hospital in Jilin to be checked.  They were told that Shen Jinming’s condition was extremely complex and they weren’t able to operate.  The parents then took him to Beijing Anzhen Hospital.  Fortunately, they were able to perform Shen Jinming’s first surgery and he was much better afterwards.  His family consists of 7 people – grandparents (the mother’s parents), parents, a 33 year old aunt, a 13 year old sister and Shen Jinming.  They make their living by farming.  Shen Jinming’s first surgery used up all their savings and they are still in debt now. They couldn’t get a loan big enough to pay for the second surgery that he needed.  Shen Jinming’s condition was critical when he came to Shanghai and he needed to have the surgery asap. His diagnosis:  Pulmonary Atresia; Post bi-directional Glenn Shunt; tricuspid dysplasia; ASD; PDA.  Our Mom to Mom team came to the rescue with a donation from one of their famous sales.    Thank you Mom to Mom!!!!  Shen Jinming (H2H Child #1545) was able to have his second surgery on December 10 at DeltaHealth.  Lana from Mom to Mom and I visited him shortly afterwards.  He is doing well.  He’s still in the hospital now, but hopes to go home before the Spring Festival holiday.  We look forward to working more closely with Victoria and the doctors / administrators at DeltaHealth in the future!

第二条——帮助先天性心脏病儿童接受手术是心连心的使命。本月,我们和医院的合作范围正式扩大,第一次由闵行区德达医院的孙医生完成了一次手术。这是一家新医院,环境设施完全不像是为贫困家庭儿童接受心脏病手术的地方,但是德达医院慷慨承诺帮助心连心。我们的第一位小病人是来自吉林省的5岁的沈津名。自打他出生,脸色就是青紫的。三天大的时候,父母带他去吉林的一家医院检查。他们被告知,孩子病情极其复杂,该医院无法完成这项手术。随后父母又带他去了北京安贞医院。幸运的是,他们为沈津名做了第一次手术,术后孩子健康明显好转。他的家庭有7位成员:外公外婆、父母、33岁的阿姨、13岁的姐姐和沈津名,全家以务农为生。沈津名的第一次手术耗尽全家所有积蓄,现在他们仍然负债累累,无法筹够资金进行第二次手术。而孩子的病情危急,需要尽快做手术。他的诊断结果是:肺动脉闭锁;后双向格伦分流器;三尖瓣发育不良;ASD, PDA。此时,心连心的Mom-to-Mom小组从一次成功的销售中筹得一笔捐赠来拯救这个孩子。感谢Mom-to-Mom团队!!!!沈津名(心连心第1545号孩子)于12月10日在德达医院接受了第二次手术。Mom-to-Mom的拉娜和我在前不久去医院探访了他。孩子看上去很好,还在医院,希望春节前可以出院回家。我们期待在未来与Victoria和德达医院的医生/管理人员们更紧密地合作!

Arts for Hearts Sake

It started with a bear from the ‘Odd Squad’ – four heart bears that couldn’t be sold because of missing or wrong parts. Two one-eyed bears nicknamed Cyclops 1 and Cyclops 2, a three-legged, one armed bear called Tripod and finally a one-eared bear playfully called Vincent Van Gogh. I adopted these bears and took them home. Not sure why, just thought maybe they could be dressed some day in a way that would celebrate their specialness.
Then there was the first Art for Hearts show and I jokingly offered to dress Vincent and see if anyone would want to buy him. Offer accepted.  Now how to dress the cute, but still only one-eared bear? I looked at pictures of Vincent Van Gogh and his paintings, and was struck by two things – his instantly recognisable sunflower paintings and a self portrait of him in a hat.

Now just merge the two… So my career as an art forger began.  And the ultimate result? A bear we couldn’t sell because of a defect raised 2,800rmb at auction. A nice start to the funding of a child’s heart operation.

Move on to the 2020 Art for Hearts show.  A request came for another ‘artist’ heart bear. But which artist to choose? I decided I wanted a female artist this time, Frida Khalo was an early possibility, but then I remembered a fantastically colourful Japanese artist whose work I had actually seen, Yayoi Kasuma. Maybe her name doesn’t ring a bell, but you may have seen some of her work…

And so a second heart artist bear was born…

Enjoy!

Cheers!
Helen Anderson, Knitting Manager Heart to Heart

Featured Volunteer: Mei Kang

Hi, everyone! I’m Mei, from Xi’an, China. I came to Shanghai in 1999 and lived in Wuxi and Chengdu for a few years in the past 20 years. I used to work in HR and Admin Management in European companies. Now I am a full-time mother. While taking care of my two children and family, I also hope to do something meaningful.

The first time I became involved in charity works was two years ago in Chengdu. I joined an international volunteer organization called “Hopeful Hearts”, which helps children from low-income families to pay for congenital heart disease surgery. We organized activities to raise funds for children’s operation fees, visited children in hospitals, and cooperated with local communities and schools to help raise public awareness.  It always a big relief to see the children leave the hospital and return to their hometown in good health. In February 2019, because my family moved back to Shanghai, I couldn’t continue working there but only maintain the WeChat public platform. Leaving that team made me feel really sad and lost.

In September 2019, by chance, I got to know Heart to Heart (H2H) and met Karen in the children’s playroom of Shanghai Yoda Cardio Thoracic Hospital. I became a part of this big team and have worked in assembly, knitting, the playroom, events, marketing, etc ever since. Therefore, I have had the honor to meet many volunteers from different countries. Their enthusiasm for H2H touched me a lot. No matter the ages of the volunteers, I deeply feel their sense of responsibility for charity.

December is the end of a year and also my birthday month.  When I moved back to Shanghai at the beginning of this year, one of my personal goals was to find something I was interested in and enthusiastic about, and could reflect my personal value.  Now I can say this wish is realized. It is also the best 45th birthday present I could give myself.  Two years of volunteer experiences enabled me to find something that I can dedicate to the rest of my life.  Besides learning new skills and knowing people from different countries, it also helps children from poor families regain their lives while working happily.  I’m deeply grateful to have met Heart to Heart and Karen and am looking forward to more wonderful experiences in 2020!

嗨,大家好!我是Mei,来自中国西安,1999年来到上海,至今已有20年。期间在无锡、成都两座城市也生活过。我曾在欧洲公司从事人力资源和行政管理工作,现在我是一位全职妈妈,在照顾好两个孩子和家庭的同时,也希望能发挥价值,为有需要的人做些力所能及的事。
第一次加入慈善组织是两年前在成都,一个叫“心的希望”的国际志愿者组织,专门帮助低收入家庭儿童完成先天性心脏病手术。志愿者们一起组织活动为儿童手术费筹款、去医院探访手术的孩子,与当地社区和学校合作,帮助提高孩子和社区团体的公益意识。看到一个个孩子健康的离开医院返回家乡,所有志愿者都感到很欣慰。2019年2月,由于我的家庭搬迁回上海,无法继续当地的工作,仅能维护微信公众号,还是让我感到很遗憾和失落。
2019年9月中旬,机缘巧合让我认识了心连心,在上海远大心胸医院的儿童活动室我见到了Karen,从那以后我便逐渐参与到团队工作中。心连心的志愿者队伍很庞大,我先后加入了后勤集会、编织、儿童活动室、小熊售卖、市场部等工作,也因此有幸认识了很多不同国家的志愿者,他们对心连心的工作热情和平实低调的态度,都令我感动。我无论是年轻的大学生,还是较我年长的志愿者,从他们身上,我深深感受到他们对慈善公益的一份责任感。
12月,即是年底,也是我的生日月。年初搬回上海后,我的年度个人目标中有一项:能遇到自己有兴趣和热情去投入,并能体现自我价值的事情。现在我可以说,2019年的这一愿望实现了,这也是我送给自己最好的45岁生日礼物。两年来的志愿者体验,让我找到可以为之奉献至余生的事情。不但学到新技能,认识不同国家的人,在快乐工作的同时,还能帮助贫困家庭孩子们重获新生。
感恩遇见心连心和Karen,期待2020年更多精彩的体验!
