China has ranked as the best developing country in Asia for children to grow up in for the second year in a row, as it continues to make impressive progress in child wellbeing, according to a new report by Save the Children.
Save the Children International announces the appointment of Helle Thorning-Schmidt as its new Chief Executive. The former Danish Prime Minister replaces Jasmine Whitbread as head of the umbrella organisation for the Save the Children movement, the world's leading independent children's charity, with responsibility for programmes reaching over 55 million children in 120 countries.
Sir Alan Parker, Chairman of Save the Children International, said:
Save the Children in China was delighted to welcome Save the Children International CEO Jasmine Whitbread to the country between May 13th and 16th, 2013. Although Ms. Whitbread’s visit was short, it was extremely eventful.
