Created in 2001 as the philanthropic branch of United Family Hospitals (UFH) the United Foundation for Chinese Orphans (UFCO) offers underprivileged kids one of the most basic, but also most important aspects of human life—health. Partnering with local organizations, UFCO provides medical services, modern healthcare, and training through UFH, as well as, funding for medical services that the cannot provide. UFCO currently operates in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou.
