Love 爱心



At Butterfly Children’s Hospices we provide loving care and treatment for children with life-limiting conditions and life-threatening illnesses. We have a children’s hospice in Changsha, and have supported other projects with specialist nursing care and advice for children who have palliative care needs, including those with complex illnesses and at end of life.

Some children have been abandoned, others are brought to us when families can no longer face the journey alone. But no matter how small or how sick, we give each child the love, care and medical attention they need.

A New Season

March 2019

“Butterfly was set up with one aim in mind – to change the care of life-limited children and their families in China. Following a period of planning our strategy for the future involving trustees, staff, donors and others we work closely with, I am excited and confident that our plans for the coming years will bring fresh impetus to the work of BCH in China.

“It is with this new season in mind that I have decided it is time to look for a new leader to carry us into the next phase of developing palliative care services for children and their families in China. Therefore, we have started the recruitment process for a new CEO and I will step aside when we have appointed to that role.

“I am looking forward to a new role with BCH – working closely with the trustees and team to support them and the new CEO in the transition and beyond.” ~ Lyn Gould, CEO
