Children Left Behind

UNICEF Awarded "Children Left Behind" in Rural China Documentary Screening
-"They have parents, but they live very lonely lives. They eat alone, they
play alone."

Producer: Catherine Lee Yuk San (Hong Kong)

"Children Left Behind"
, a 30-minute documentary, chronicles the lives of
children who are "left behind" in the villages of rural China, when their
parents migrate to urban areas in search of work. As part of China's
economic boom, it is estimated that over 120 million rural migrants have
moved to urban areas to work in factories and construction. A new phenomenon
in China, the number of children "left behind" is now estimated to be over
22 million. Although it is their basic right to have their parent's love,
concern and care, in reality you can see that they live like an orphan. (For

After the screening, Dream Corps will present an introduction about

question and answer session will follow, with information on how you can get
involved with our current projects.
