Today I wanted to share with you about Fei Bi, the youngest child at the special needs orphanage in China supported by Global Partners in Life. Granted, she is only two years old — but she is quite large for her age, and she has an enormous appetite. Would you like to see a picture of her from my last trip?
Unfortunately, Fei Bi has cerebral palsy, which means she requires much more care than most of the other children at the orphanage, which puts a strain on the staff. As I mentioned, she has a large appetite; but she can’t feed herself, so one of the workers has to feed her. Fei Bi can’t dress herself or take herself to the restroom, so all of these daily events require assistance from someone else that is capable of correctly helping our little friend.
Global Partners in Life is trying to provide the funding for Fei Bi, and all the other children at the special needs orphanage, to have another worker there to administer the attention they need.
Everything has to be done for Fei Bi, because she can’t brush her teeth, bathe herself, wash her clothes, or prepare the meals she enjoys so much.
