Soneva Jani Hosts Asia Premiere of Children of Shanghai

Soneva Jani, in the Maldives’ Noonu Atoll, celebrated the Asia premiere of Children of Shanghai with a private screening at Cinema Paradiso on May 17, 2023. The hour-long documentary, narrated by British adventurer Bear Grylls, tells the tales of the first fostered children in China whose lives were dramatically changed thanks to the Care for Children charity. The event was hosted by Chinese singer-songwriter G.E.M., a passionate patron who also donated a portion of proceeds from her latest record to the charity.

The documentary spotlights the story of former professional footballer Robert Glover, who, together with his wife Elizabeth and their six young children, moved from the UK to China in 1998 and founded the charity Care for Children – the first to introduce fostering programmes in the country. The film follows five children who overcame many challenges to achieve success as young professionals. Care for Children has since placed around a million orphans with families.
