The Dui Hua Foundation ->
Dui Hua’s mission is to bring clemency and better treatment to at-risk detainees through mutually respectful dialogue with China. Established in 1999, our work has gained credibility with government officials, the media, and the people we serve. Dui Hua started with a request by founder and Executive Director John Kamm—then a successful businessman in Hong Kong—to release a political prisoner involved in the 1989 Tiananmen incident. Since then, Dui Hua has helped hundreds of prisoners; built productive relationships with China, the US, and EU; and gained Special Consultative Status with the UN.
