Amity’s elderly care has the vision to care for others’ elder as your own, with the mission of abundant lives through social service, and the target of outstanding governance, service, and branding. Amity International Philanthropy Valley, a joint project initiated by Amity Foundation and the Civil Affairs Bureau of Qixia District, Nanjing, provides care services for the elderly. It aims to establish model centers for the care of the elderly, based on which Amity also supports philanthropic entrepreneurship and NGO development, provides charity and social service training, facilitates exchanges between volunteers at home and abroad, and organizes international philanthropy-themed forums.
