During my recent visit to the special needs orphanage supported by Global Partners in Life, we delivered Christmas gifts, and I received a nice surprise. There was a lady working there whom I had never seen before, so I asked the lady that leads the orphanage who she was. Her answer was a wonderful surprise for me to hear.
A new worker has been hired, and her name is Li. Her salary is paid by the very generous donors supporting Global Partners in Life, and I am so thankful the children have another worker there to care for them. We have been supporting the orphanage for 11 years, and I have always felt more workers were needed, so this was a wonderful surprise for me. Would you like to meet Li?
Li had gone to the hospital many times to take Fei Bi, the 4 year old girl with cerebral palsy, for medical attention and therapy. After observing the physical therapy, Li decided she could replicate the therapy for Fei Bi at the orphanage. Would you like to see Li in action?
This is one of the many exercises Li does with Fei Bi, and Fei Bi seems to enjoy them. In the past, Fei Bi would scream out randomly, and on this visit I never heard her screaming at all. Here is some huge news regarding the progress of Fei Bi. She can now hold her head up for a few seconds by herself! Previously, she could never hold her head up at all. This may not sound like much progress for most of you — but believe me, it is worthy of a celebration when you work with the children daily!
As you can see, your donations to Global Partners in Life are having life changing results in China!
