Chinese adoptees

Out next meeting will be held on
Saturday 15th June 2013
1:30pm at Meadowbank Community Centre
29 St Johns Road, Meadowbank

We have a lady by the name of Jean Griffiths who will be giving a talk on Chinese adoptees, she will also be bringing data projector for a slide show of her trip back to Hong Kong in 2010

During 1950’s & 60’s, due to extreme poverty in China and Hong Kong, many children were abandoned ( on street corners) or sold by their parents in the hope of a better life for their child.  At that period of time there was British influence in Hong Kong, many children were adopted to many English speaking countries, i.e. N.Z., Canada and many  more countries through out the world
