One of our board member's 18 year old daughter, Christina Zhang, has started a campaign to raise the money needed for his medical treatment, transportation, and stay in Shanghai. Mandy Ma, our administrator in Du'an, can travel with him and his mother for his treatment. We are still estimating the expense, but we know it will be much more than the $3,134 we have in a savings account for him. Please give so this little boy have a better quality of life.
Below is a letter from Dr. Ke describing his condition.
It seems it is a cystic lymphangioma, a malformations of the lymphatic system, which is the network of vessels responsible for returning excess fluid from tissues to the venous system. The direct cause of lymphangioma is a blockage of the lymphatic system as a fetus develops, although symptoms may not become visible until after the baby is born.
The prognosis for lymphangioma is generally very good. Surgical removal of the tumor is the typical treatment provided, with the understanding that additional removal procedures will most likely be required as the lymphangioma grows. Most patients need at least two procedures done for the removal process to be achieved. We expect a happy ending to Wei's story. We will keep you informed.

Blessing Hands Scholarships
Scholarships Needed for Worthy Students
Xie Tinglin Worked in a Factory for the Summer
Xie Tinglin is a student who interviewed by Internet, because he is working away from home. He is working in a factory to earn money for college. We think he must be trying very hard to help himself.
Each month he works 10 hours a day for 30 days making Christmas decorations for the Western market. He gets 4.33 yuan ($.68) an hour. 1200 yuan ($188) a month is his salary. That is why those decorations are so cheap.
His tuition at Guangxi University of Finance and Economics is 3600 yuan ($565). He has succeeded in getting admitted, and we would like to see him have a $650 scholarship to attend. He will be studying employment management. His scholarship essay is below.
Xie Tinglin interveiwed online
My name is Xie Tinglin. I am a 21 year old boy who just graduated for Xinzhou High School in Lingshan County of Qinzhou Prefecture in the Guangxi Province of China. I am a child of a poor family because my parents are farmers. My father is 72 years old now, and he always gets sick because of hard work. He wants to go to the doctor, but it cost much money, so he can't.
The income of my family is low, so I didn't have the money to pay for my study in my high school years. Thanks to Blessing Hands' help, I was able to finish my study and now I am applying for a college scholarship. I want to go to the Guangxi University of Finance and Economics. I know I can find a good job easily if I study hard. It cost much more money for college, so I also need your help. Thank you very much if you can give me a hand.
Someday I hope I can find a good job and make money to support my parents who I love. Of course what is most important is to pay back my favor by helping other people who need help and express love without expecting any return like Blessing Hands does.
Thank you, Xie Tinglin

I am a mother and housewife that loves China and children. The two interests
have come together in serving the children of China who need help with
educational needs. I started as a teacher in an English summer camp and got to
know the teachers first. When I toured their schools and met their precious
students, I could see many needs and decided to try to help. I first started a
fund to assist children with tuition, but it has expanded into a 501(c)(3)public
charity granting money for textbooks and school supplies for primary school and
lower middle school students and tuition for older students.
