Pen Friend

A Pen Friend from China…with MBL



‘Hello’ – ‘Thank you’ – ‘My name is Cindy’ – ‘I live in Britain’

Do you want to have an overseas pen friend far away from – China?

Do you want to learn Chinese language and the differences between China and the UK?

Do you want to visit China and your pen friend and her/his family…one day?


One of our projects – Pen Friend is to help and keep the link between Chinese children/youths in all corner of the world and enable them to get access to their birth culture in a very unique, interesting and friendly way, which we believe could be very rewarding for their future.


How does it work?

  1. Download and fill in MBL Pen Friend Form (Word) and email it to headoffice@mothersbridge.org or send it to us – MBL, 9 Orme Court, London W2 4RL, UK.
  2. Both children/youths will receive the respective contact information, then it is your turn to make a friend…happy writing!
