Little Artists Big Dreams Drawing Competition

for every child, a better world

Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF HK) will hold the China Children's Week 2018 – Little Artists Big Dreams Drawing Competition at Central Lawn, Nursery Park, West Kowloon Cultural District on 18 March 2018 (Sunday). Under the theme ‘for every child, a better world’, the competition will raise funds for UNICEF’s 'Cash Transfers for Deprived Children' (CCT) Project in China, dedicated to giving a good start in life for every child by improving the maternal and child health services in rural China. This year, under the theme ‘for every child, a better world’, UNICEF HK has collaborated with cartoon character Din Dong to launch the all-new Comic Strip Drawing Challenge. Din-Dong, full of positive energy and dreams, will inspire young artists to create a good start in life for every child with their compassion and imagination.This year’s event will be once again fully supported by Principal Sponsor, Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group Limited.

Although families from remote and deprived areas are now entitled to free hospital delivery and health care services, suspension of work and high travelling costs make them reluctant to access these services and lead to high maternal and neonatal mortality rates. Since 2013, UNICEF HK has allocated the funds raised in China Children's Week to the CCT project launched by UNICEF in 15 counties in Yunnan, Gansu and Sichuan. Through the initiative, women from underprivileged families will receive cash subsidies, enabling their access to prenatal and postnatal checkups, hospital delivery and vaccinations for their babies. By December 2017, over 20,000 women and children have benefitted from this project.

What is China Children's Week? 

UNICEF HK launched the China Children's Week (CCW) in 1993 to raise funds to improve children's welfare and health care in China. Since 1993, we have raised over HK$121 million, which are used to greatly improve the living conditions of women and children in need, and contribute to the eradication of polio, and maternal and neonatal tetanus.

From 1993 to 1995, we organized fundraising campaigns for polio eradication in China and raised more than HK$27 million for the purchase of polio vaccines to immunize infants in China and help eradicate polio. China had been declared polio-free in 2000. In 1996, we raised funds for the elimination of neonatal Tetanus in China. The result was encouraging with more than HK$6 million raised and with China having maternal and neonatal tetanus eliminated in 2012. 

Afterwards, UNICEF HK dedicated the donations of CCW to help deprived children in China. Since 1997, UNICEF has been working with partners to launch the 'Social Development Programme for Poor Areas in China' (SPPA), followed by two other micro-credit programmes named 'Local Planning and Action for Children' (LPAC) in 2008 and 'Local Actions for Rural Children'(LARC) in 2011. Since 2013, funds raised by CCW have supported the CCT Project in subsidizing deprived rural families and encouraging them to receive vital maternal and newborn health services.

Where donation goes?

This year, funds raised from the China Children's Week (CCW) will support the 'Cash Transfers for Deprived Children' Project in rural China. 

Today in China, 11 newborns die every hour, with 3 of those happen on the same day they were born. The situation is even worse in remote areas - neonatal mortality rate is 2.4 times higher in rural areas than cities. In 2015 alone, there were over 4,400 cases of maternal deaths, meaning some babies lost the love and care from their mothers in their early days of life. These deaths could have been prevented with simple and effective health services.

Since 2013, UNICEF HK has allocated the funds raised in China Children's Week to the CCT project launched by UNICEF in 15 counties in Yunnan, Gansu and Sichuan. Through the initiative, women from underprivileged families will receive cash subsidies, enabling their access to prenatal and postnatal checkups, hospital delivery and vaccinations for their babies.
