Update on Wei Senbao
Newsletter BLESSING HANDS
Wei Senbao is an Outpatient Patient now.
I wanted to give you an update. Wei stayed two days in the hospital and then was able to take his medicine as an outpatient and be with his Mom in their rented room. He is now just waiting for the doctor to come back from the USA, so he can have his treatment. Mandy gave his Mom a cheap phone so she could keep in touch.

We have a college volunteer, Jason Justice, who has helped us make a flier and newspaper article about the KY Gives Day.
This is a state-wide event that takes place April 24th 2013. On April 24th, log on to www.kygives.org and search Blessing Hands. Click the link to give to Wei Senbao.

Dr. Dai delivering
Ling Wang Kindergarten & Primary School
The narrow road is new.
We just got pictures of Dr. Dai giving school supplies to the 50+ students at Ling Wang School. Dr. Dai helps us get school supplies up to this one room kindergarten. He also checks on their health. Wei Senbao lives in this village.Until last year it was 2 hour hike to visit the school. Now they have a new road and the hospital van can travel to their door.
The kids get workbooks and notebooks.
The kids are eager to see what Dr. Dai has brought.
All the kids get about 10 pencils
The kids got balls too.
They are of the Yao Minority and very remotely located in high mountains. About half of the students will board at the larger school and sleep in dorms with large amounts of students when they get old enough to go to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. Blessing Hands put cash jars in Chinese restaurants to get the cash to help these kids. Thank you for your donations in Morehead and Lexington.

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.
