At the special needs orphanage in China supported by the generous donors of Global Partners in Life, there is a very impressive little girl about 4 years old named Fei Bi. She has cerebral palsy, but has recently made many wonderful improvements! During my recent visit, I took some photos, so would you like to see her?
What is impressive about Fei Bi is how well she is responding to physical therapy! Prior to her therapy, Fei Bi had to be strapped into her wheelchair, and about the only noise she made was when she screamed or when she would grind her teeth. Global Partners in Life is funding her therapy 5 days a week, and she receives many stretching exercises as well as acupuncture. The results from her treatments have been amazing!
The first sign of improvement was Fei Bi being able to hold her head up without any assistance. That was followed by her being able to roll over all by herself! As you can see in the photo below, Fei Bi, from what I am told by those that are with her daily, is trying to become verbal. No longer does she scream like she is under some type of attack, but she is much more calm when she makes noises with her mouth!
Now that Fei Bi is receiving treatments 5 days a week, I haven’t heard her grinding her teeth. Believe me, when she would grind her teeth, you could hear her from the next room!
Thanks to your generous donations, the quality of life is improving for Fei Bi, and those that provide care for her. I am sure for the other children it is more pleasant for them to be around her as well, so this is a win–win–win situation, all made possible because of your donations.
