ICC has partnered with some incredible artists and musicians to help share the story creating full lives for China's abandoned and disabled. These artists have all traveled to China and seen the ICC work up close. Then they tell their story in front of their fans and supporters.
Ning Kam (http://www.ningkam.com) is a world-renowned concert violinist. Born in Singapore, Ning has lived, studied and performed all around the world but now resides in the UK. She has trained under some of the most accomplished names in classical music, such as Maurizio Fuks, Wen Zhou Li, the late Sidney Griller and others.
She has performed on stages around the globe and with many orchestras. In 2009, she was invited to perform for the President of Singapore. She has won numerous prizes at major violin competitions, including second prize at the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Competition of Belgium in 2001.
Ning became involved with International China Concern after getting married. Her husband was an ICC Child Sponsor and the mission and vision of ICC moved her. She has become an ICC Ambassador, performing at benefit concerts for ICC to help to raise awareness.
In 2012, Ning and her husband joined an ICC China Team to visit our project in Hengyang. There she spent time with the little girl that she and her husband sponsor.
"It was just so amazing to see her [in person]. We have her picture on our fridge at home. It's one thing to see the picture but another to faced with the actual person... When you see a child react to you and to smile, there's nothing that compares with that."
It was an emotional trip, but Ning came away very moved. As an ICC Ambassador, she is committed to doing what she can to raise the profile of ICC and support the work done in China.
