The Mothersâ€™ Bridge of Love is a UK-based charity founded in 2004 by Xinran, author of Good Women of China, Sky Burial and What Chinese Donâ€™t Eat. We aim to build the bridge between China and the west, between birth and adoptive culture and between the poor and the rich. Our mission is â€˜culture for childrenâ€™. Our head office is based in London.Â
As our charity is growing fast, we are constantly looking for volunteers for various projects and office duties in London. The jobs advertised here are voluntary, with reimbursement to cover reasonable meals and travel expenses. Trainings will be provided to volunteers.Â

Â Â Â * To get first-hand and latest knowledge and understanding towards the fast-growing China as it is today.
