Launch of first Chinese educational video on children’s palliative care

Butterfly Children’s Hospices (BCH) is proud to announce the launch of this educational video – the first in Chinese language and featuring Chinese mothers, health and social care staff in China and Hong Kong. The video has English subtitles.

At its pre launch viewing in November 2016 at the second national Children’s Palliative Care conference in Shanghai, it was well received and deemed both fascinating and deeply moving.

Created to educate and promote the concept of palliative care as a comforting and caring service, with an emphasis on improving quality of life for children and their families, it is also an incredibly powerful introduction for the full range of care providers and services.

This project was envisioned, lead and funded by Butterfly Children’s Hospices using a grant received from the Overseas Chinese Charity Foundation, and produced by respected Chinese film-maker Ma Chang.

BCH is indebted to individuals and organisations in mainland China and Hong Kong who gave their time and expertise for this project. The list of credits serves to highlight the breadth of interest and commitment to developing and providing palliative care services for the estimated 4.5 million life limited children and their families in China.

The video is suitable for use in health and non health care settings internationally and is available for download and showing free of charge. The video can be accessed via YouTube at
