Update on Wei Senbao

Wei Senbao
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. 

Kentucky Gives Day is a collaboration of the Kentucky Nonprofit Network, Inc., participating nonprofits and corporate, foundation and media partners. The Kentucky Nonprofit Network, Inc. exists to serve, strengthen and advance the Commonwealth's nonprofit organizations. 
 
Wei is in need of an operation and Blessing Hands is asking for your help. All Kentucky Gives Day donations will be used to help give Wei the operation(s) and therapy that he needs.  For more on Wei Senbao and his story, please visit our website.

If you would be interested in joining the Blessing Hands fundraising team then please volunteer to be on our KY Gives Team

With your help we can make this Kentucky Gives Day event a success!

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.

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.
