We are delighted to be able to begin 2010 with some great news.
Hope4China has grown another leg........
From our very small beginnings in 2005 our hope has always been to do more for the children we came across with differing special needs.
During these years we have been able to support Angel House who care for children with cerebral palsy, enabled one of our Desheng girls to live in at the Ark Centre for therapy, given extra support for our SN children in Foster care and helped with operations and equipment for many children.
This year we are delighted to be able to start a new programme,
New Hope4Special Children (a better translation of Hope4China in Chinese,
Hope4China, with grateful support from Dunfermline Rotary, two local churches and other friends around the world, are now employing Helen to work to improve the lives of children with cerebral palsy in Yongning, and support Ms Li as she goes into Desheng SWI to love, motivate and support the children there.
As she provides this level of care, we hope that other local families may be encouraged to foster children with special needs, enabling them to leave institutional care and grow within a loving family environment.
She will also support Ms Li who will go into Desheng SWI every day to provide stimulation, love and support for the children currently in the Rehabilitation centre there.
We are so thankful to have such loving, faithful and dedicated staff in China.
Together with amazing sponsors/supporters around the world, it makes for a pretty formidable TEAM. We are also so lucky that there are experts on hand to support and advise Helen :- Cindy who has been able to assess and order equipment for some of the Desheng children, with Felicity and a growing band of H4C sponsors with expertise in different areas of working with children.
TEAM!!!!!!!! Together Everyone Achieves More!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here are some of the precious children with Helen and the foster mothers who provide this care.......
