Launched in 2014, the program engages employees of Ingersoll Rand in China to help AIDS-affected orphans pursue education and vocational training. It also enables more people to build an understanding of the AIDS disease and treat AIDS-affected people respectfully and fairly.

    In the program’s first year, Ingersoll Rand employees from around China took part in the “Talk to AIDS” workshop and participated in a volunteer activity at the Shanghai Young Bakers baking center, funded by CHF. We continued the program in 2015 with a “Children's Charity Drawing Competition,” inviting all of our China employees to submit their children’s paintings in the theme of “My Dream.” The aim was to help AIDS-affected orphans pursue their education dreams through online bidding and an on-site auction of the paintings at the Ingersoll Rand Shanghai office.

    Before bidding began, the team exhibited about 100 brilliant paintings by children of employees. CHF presented paintings drawn by the AIDS-affected orphans and shared the painters’ stories, vividly displaying their determination, optimism and positive attitude towards life. All funds raised in the auction were donated to CHF to support 81 AIDS-affected orphans in Anhui Province in completing their one-year primary school education, and company leaders presented the prizes to the 19 winners and their parents.

    PR Newswire, a global leading news distribution agency, named the Ingersoll Rand China AIDS-affected Orphan Program the Best Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Communications of the year. The award recognizes the program’s positive social impact generated across China, as well as the multiple communications channels it has leveraged over two consecutive years to reach a wider group of people with its positive message.

    “I am glad that I can provide personal support to those kids.” says Tina Hong, one of the Glocal volunteers who joined the activity with her daughter. “In this program, my daughter and I have established true friendship with the school’s students. She is more than willing to help those diligent ‘brothers and sisters’. More than that, she also cherishes a lot of the life she enjoys now.
