During our visit to Beijing, we also visited a CMC Community Center. CMC – Compassion for Migrant Children – is a nonprofit organization that aims to help China’s urban migrant children. Why and how do they help migrant kids? You can read more here.
The Community Center is located on the outskirts of the city in the heart of a migrant community (we were impressed we could even give the taxi driver accurate directions!). While we went through narrow alleys to find it, the center is bright and welcoming.
On that particular day, they were offering free medical check-ups for all the kids in the community.
Although we only got a small glimpse and understanding of what CMC does, I can see they are doing a good work and many people have been encouraged by it. I enjoyed walking around and photographing the kids. Hopefully, I’ll have a chance to photograph their lovely faces again.
