2nd Village: three students lived in this house with their mother (the father ran away several years ago). The two brothers are sick with haemophilia(血友病) and need weekly medication. They were not in school that day due to having a fever. The mother was very kind and hospitable. We chatted and introduced to the children where were from. It was the first time they had met foreigners, not counting 5 nationalities! They were quite shy but very nice. The CPAZ volunteers decided to give a on the spot additional donation for this family, which led to emotions swelling high, and tears on both sides.
– 第二条村子:三位孩子和他们的母亲一起住(父亲几年前离家出走了)。其中两兄弟都患有血友病,需要每周用药。今天由于发烧所以没上学。母亲非常善良好客。我们给孩子们介绍我们来自哪里。这是他们第一次遇见外国人,还是来自5个不同国籍!他们很害羞,但非常友好。爱心会志愿者决定,当场为这个家庭给予额外的捐款,他们母亲当即流下了感激的泪水。

What’s Next? How can YOU help?



Email: info@internchina.com & jj@deltabridges.com



Come Together 2014 is currently in the process of being organized so that we can effectively lobby and secure bigger donations for next year’s event. But WE NEED YOUR HELP! How? Easy:


1)      Donations pledged to the Charity

2)      Prizes for the lucky draws

3)      Cash Sponsorships to cover the costs of the event (even though the actual costs are pretty low, it would be great if all could be covered so that all the profit from the drinks could directly go to the charity fund)

4)      Alcohol Sponsorships (to be sold during venue-to raise funds)

5)      Band to perform!

6)      Volunteers to help with the above and with the event itself.

The Zhuhai “Come Together” charity event

This past weekend, the InternChina Zhuhai office was main organizer of the “Come Together” charity event, which took place on September 8th from 3pm to 9pm at the Live bar. Everything at the event was completely donated: The owner of the Live bar didn´t charge any fee, the local bars took part and donated the beers and spirits, the restaurants donated raffle prizes.
One night before the event the Zhuhai Office went out to the clubs and bars in Zhuhai to promote this event! It was fun and a nice experience to see how different the reactions of Foreign and Chinese people are when you start talking about this kind of events.

On Sunday September 8th we had about 30 volunteers helping out with preparation before the event, selling beers and spirits, cleaning and collecting the donations. Chinese and Foreigners came together to work for a good thing. Four live bands: Tommy Chung, The Buhao Boys, Phil O´Flaherty and The High Rollers were playing during the event and ensured a great atmosphere.

In addition, there were raffle prizes including a night in a five star hotel in Zhuhai or a day in a hot spring. We also had a date night auction where the highest bidder won an evening of the volunteer auctionees time.

InternChina- One of the lucky prize winners!

The money for beers, spirits, raffle tickets and the money we raise with the auction went directly into donation boxes. In total we raised over 100,000 RMB. All the money is going to the organization “Cpaz”. With this amount of money “Cpaz” is able to support around 160 children without a Zhuhai “hukou” in education. It covers lunch,transportation, study material, school uniform and a school bag for one term. It was a day full of fun and positive energy because everyone knew we came together for the children!

InternChina’s Qingdao Host-Family Lunch

InternChina – Host Family Dinner

Last week on Sunday 2nd December, InternChina’s Qingdao office organized lunch buffet in Qingdao’s famous Copthorne Hotel (国敦大酒店).

We invited all our host families to say thank you for so many years of co-operation: Putting up with different students from all over the world, treating them like family members and taking time to integrate them into their families is a lot to ask and we know that!

InternChina – Delicious Food

Staying in a host-family means a lot of effort for both sides: The student has to get used to a completely different way of life and has to integrate him- or herself into Chinese family life and the Chinese family has to learn about a new culture, too.
But staying in a Chinese family will mean a big boost for your Chinese knowledge. It’s one of the best ways to learn Mandarin Chinese, and there is no need to be afraid, all our host-families have a least one person who is able to speak English. Our host-families are also very caring. They provide breakfast and dinner for all our students and sometimes will also take you to enjoy family activities on the weekends, that’s why we thought a mixed lunch would be perfect for everyone. Combining Western and Chinese cuisine, making both sides more eager to know more about the other – you will not only learn about Chinese culture but also about your own. Being a part of a Chinese family will be a unique chance and we want to thank all our host-families to make this great experience possible!

Come together Charity in Zhuhai

Giving 60 children the opportunity to go to school- that was the headline of the day in Zhuhai. On September 1st InternChina helped organise a Charity-Event ‘Come together’ in the Beishan theatre to help raise money to buy children equipment to go to school.

InternChina – Charity

The collected money from the Charity Event ‘Come together’ was given to the children today at their new school. The head-organizers of ‘Come together’ gave the envelopes to the children and got compensated with an affecting speech of one of the kids.

InternChina – Donation

InternChina and a lot of InternChina interns helped to collect money for the school education of 50 children. Several live bands and DJs, a BBQ, a donation and a raffle helped to collect enough money to buy 60 children their whole school equipment.

InternChina – School

After the event was such a big success and after everyone saw the smiling children practicing their English, everybody was sure, that there will be a ‘Come together’ next year.

InternChina – Happy Children

Thanks again everybody for helping and for making all of this happen.

Zhuhai InternChina Events

‘Come together’-Charity Event

Helping to provide local Chinese children with an education at school while listening to great live-music. For most of us here in Zhuhai, that was the main priority this weekend. On Saturday 1st InternChina helped organise a Charity-Event ‘Come together’ in the Beishan theatre to help raise money to buy children equipment to go to school.

InternChina – Donation

Several bands from HongKong and Macau, like The High Rollers, Tommy Chung and the Chicago Blues and The Bu Hao Boys came to be a part of ‘Come together’ and made sure the Event became a big Party. While helping to collect money for a good cause, people also had a good time dancing and laughing the whole night, in very impressive scenery.

InternChina – Band

The Beishan Theatre and the Beishan Hall were built in the Qing dynasty, where the traditional Chinese Flair will hook you in immediately. Beishan was surrounded by small alleys, small Chinese shops, where men were playing cards till late at night and people were enjoying a barbecue on the street. It really did feel like you are in a completely different world.

InternChina – Zhuhai

Having fun in that incredible atmosphere made everyone excited to help out and be part of this charity project.  All the intern volunteers had important tasks that they needed to do which included: coordinating the seven live bands, helping with the sound and light on stage, arranging the raffle and the donation and a lot more.

InternChina – Moderator

The money raised means that there is enough money collected to buy more than 50 kids their whole school equipment, so overall the charity event was a success!

1st Bar Tour in Qingdao

Hi everybody!
This is Stefan from Internchina Qingdao blogging. Some news to update you: Internchina Qingdao office is proud to present its first Bar Tour on February 11th! It was an amazing pub crawl well organized by Franzi for her very last weekend in Qingdao as an Internchina intern 🙁 Thank you so much for everything!
Back to topic: 15 participants divided in groups of 3 people (with at least one girl in each group to keep fair conditions) tried their best to be the first group in the last bar, in order to get the prize of free beer. We had quite a lot new arrivals these days so it totally made sense to let them get to know Qingdao’s nightlife and the new intern community. Despite the competitive character, the atmosphere was relaxed and – for sure – everybody had great times. Altogether 6 Bars were involved and had great offers of 7 drinks and snacks. For every Bar each participant got his Bar Visa stamped to make sure, no one skips a Bar to be the first group. Although there was not really a danger of people skipping drinks, which they would get for special offer . We started at Diner22 with a cocktail of our choice and some snacks to be prepared for the evening. The route for the next stops (Terrazzo, Old Jack’s, Charlie’s Bar and LPG) could be chosen by every group itself. However, except one group we all took the same ways, enjoying the drinks together. The variety of drinks we got in every Bar ranged from Cocktails, over beer, shots, wine and Long drinks. That night’s destination that had to be reached safely and with full stamp card, was Carnegie’s in Zhonglian Plaza. Oh and… well, guess who’s team won? I had loved to drink my winner beer but someone stole it!… The destination Zhonglian Plaza was of course also well chosen, since it is well known party area in Qingdao. For those who still didn’t had enough after 6 Bars and at least 7 drinks, there is Ye Chao Club right next door of Carnegie’s. Fortunately, everybody made it to the final stop without any bigger incidents.
The next Bar Tour will be in March, the exact date will be announced soon! Hard to top that pub crawl but we are working hard on it 🙂

Hopefully see you on the next tour then!
