Business Traveller Asia-Pacific’s much-anticipated Charity Auction is back for its 12th year supporting Hong Kong’s Chi Heng Foundation (CHF), which provides support for AIDS-impacted children in China.
Kicking off today (November 1, 2017), the auction will be conducted in three one-month-long phases, each offering a different selection of items for readers to bid on. Phase one will run until November 30, with the second and third phases starting on December 1 and January 1, 2018 respectively.
This year’s auction includes a total of more than 100 packages available for bidding, including airfares, hotel stays in Asia-Pacific and beyond, and more.
As Business Traveller Asia-Pacific enters its 12th year of association with CHF, we are proud that our efforts, and those of our many partners in the hotel and airline industries, are making a real difference to the lives of so many young people in China.
Over the past 15 years, CHF has fulfilled a long-running commitment to provide educational sponsorship and psychosocial support to AIDS-impacted children in China, from primary school through to university. As of July 2017, CHF had cumulatively sponsored about 20,000 students from AIDS-affected families, and more than 1,700 have graduated from universities since 2002.
In addition to formal education, CHF also supports vocational training and runs psychosocial programmes for the children. In spite of the challenges, CHF has built more than 25 reading rooms in China this year, 16 of which were built with the support of Business Traveller. All proceeds raised from the charity auction go to CHF.
