He Liliang Visits Gung Ho!
Honored Stateswoman He Liliang and the Gung Ho! Team
Some of you already know this of course, but Gung Ho’s vision is to change peoples’ lives. The name ‘Gung Ho’ itself comes from ‘Gong Ye He Zuo She’, the Chinese industrial co-operatives started by New Zealand expatriate Rewi Alley in 1938, who is a massive hero of ours.
Last Monday, we were incredibly honored to have He Liliang, the wife of renowned Chinese diplomat Huang Hua, come and talk to all of our managers about her inspiring life story.She talked about meeting Henry Kissinger and Helmet Schmidt, about incredibly tough times during the war of resistance against Japan and the following war of liberation against the KMT, about the time that Rewi Alley helped push an old bus along an old country road, and about how her and her husband, along with Gong He, helped change the lives of Chinese people.
Thanks again He Liliang for your incredible story!
