My daughter and her friend would like to donate a tiny amount of money to the Xiamen Zoo to help the starving animals. How do we reach them? Where would we send a check? Thank you,
Dear Mrs Graham,
Thank you for writing to us.
Our editor has confirmed there is a Xiamen Haicang Safari Park in the city. The former Xiamen Zoo was closed under a relevant municipal engineering scheme. There is a program in Xiamen for donating to support wild animals. The safari park has an account in the CITIC Industrial Bank Xiamen Branch to receive money or check. Money can be remitted directly into the account.
In details (we suppose the Chinese version in the brackets may be helpful for you and a relevant Chinese character software can help you read them easily):
Name of Account Holder: Xiamen Municipal Wildlife Relief Fund (厦门市野生动物救助基金)
Account Number: 7342010182600035811
Bank of Deposit: CITIC Industrial Bank Xiamen Branch (中信实业银行厦门支行)
By the way, your daughter and her friend can also go to any local post office or bank to remit their donation if they are in any Chinese city at present. The international remittance business of the CITIC Industrial Bank will be transmitted through Bank One. So, if they are not living in China, they had better inform the bank clerk of the above message. That is what the bank clerk in the Xiamen Branch told us.
Telephone number of the Xiamen Haicang Safari Park is 86-0592-6895999.
