Charities and Causes

The China Open supports the Bethel China Foundation, which provides education and care programs for blind orphans in the Beijing area. Two of the organisation's key initiatives include “The Love Is Blind Project”, supporting 60 blind orphans on its 17-acre project site just south of Beijing, and “Project 555”, offering training to other orphanages throughout China to better care for this community. 

The tournament is also an advocate of the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation, which assists with the ongoing and cultural development of disadvantaged children from the city of Wuhan in China. 

Highlights

The Bethel China Foundation has secured foster homes and schooling for over 70 children in Beijing and runs a successful training program for orphanages all over China to assist with the needs of visually impaired youth.

As the China Open’s selected charitable cause in 2011, Bethel received a donation of $10,000 as part of the ATP ACES For Charity initiative. A team of China Open staff members visited the Bethel Home in 2012, bringing blankets, stuffed toys, tennis balls, fruits and vitamins for the children. They also donated player-autographed memorabilia to be auctioned for charity.
