Christian Action was founded as a registered charity organization in 1985 in Hong Kong with the mission to help the poor, disadvantaged, displaced, marginalized and abandoned.
Christian Action began cooperating with the Qinghai Provincial Government in 1996 and opened the Xining Children’s home in 1998. Most of the children at Xining Children’s Home suffer from disabilities. Since then four more children’s homes have been opened, and are co-run by Christian Action and the Qinghai local government.
