The Mothers? Bridge of Love (MBL) is a charity which was founded in the UK in 2004 with charity registration number 1105543 by Xinran, a columnist for the Guardian Newspaper and author of books such as The Good Women of China and Sky Burial and Message from an Unknown Chinese Mother. Xinran is supported by the Trustees, Toby Eady, and Jeremy Gordon, and Head Office Julie Zhu as well as a team of volunteers. MBL Volunteer Home is in Nanjing, China.
We are reaching out to Chinese children in all corners of the world: those who have been adopted by Western families, those who have been raised abroad, and those living in China, often in destitute conditions. MBL is also striving to introduce an authentic China to the West as well as disseminate information about adopted Chinese children?s lives and the lives of overseas Chinese in the West to people in China. By creating a bridge of understanding between China and the West and between adoptive culture and birth culture, MBL ultimately wants to help bridge the huge poverty gap, which still exists in many parts of China.
