A new program and some more kids in need and we will does our best to see that those needs are met. Today we started a food program for the kids, (thanks Patty) and identified some much needed disability aids, if you would like to help out just let me know with a message♥♥
Thanks to the staff from the Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice (Sussex, UK), Helping Hands was able to purchase an electric wheelchair! So far Roi, Lan Thu & Mai have used the chair and it was a huge success! They are loving the independence and freedom in using the chair! We are looking forward to trying it out with more residents. Thank you!! ❤️❤️❤️
PLC and their student families are one of our greatest supporters and each year they come for a five day visit and then return to Australia for their annual Ba Vi fundraiser. We could not do everything we do without their support. A bitter sweet moment, always so happy to see them, so sad to see them go.
They say that creative therapy enhances your emotional wellbeing, I guess if the smile on Thuong's face is anything to go by then that is certainly true. Since starting our creative therapy program 3 years ago and building our new room 1 year ago the kids just cant get enough, and we cannot get enough of them to the room. It is a place that gives them joy and in return much joy to us and the volunteers that help out.
This morning, Helping Hands arranged to take 3 children and 1 adult to the local hospital. They went for x-rays and general health checkups. Dung, Lan, Mai & Lan are healthy and healing! Thank you to everyone who supports us and makes trips like these possible!
With the help of our much loved volunteer Nicola, Helping Hands was able to purchase three new rehabilitation support chairs. These chairs are slightly different from our other rehab chairs as they are able to recline. They are very suitable for a few of our children who could not sit in the other ones! As you can see, we have some very happy boys trying out the new chairs!!
