School Supplies Surprise Students
Yao Minority Schools Receive School Supplies
While it is good weather, Dr. Dai and his volunteers have delivered new school supplies to the schools we have adopted in the Longfu County of Du'an. These schools that serve kindergarten - 2nd grade are very remote and hard to get to. We had to get out and walk this summer when our team tried to go up the steep road on the way to Lin Wang School.

These kids need exercise books, pencils, erasers, art supplies, and sports equipment such as hula hoops. basketballs, ping pong supplies, and other things. They can't hop in a car and go to town and even if they could, their families don't have the money to spend.Their teachers board at the schools, going home occasionally. They do have new schools, desks, and nutritious lunches now.
We have cash jars in local Chinese restaurants that collect money for this program. Some students have sponsors and receive backpacks and other gifts like clothes or shoes. We also pay the salary of health assistants for 10 village schools in Du'an County. They are first responders when medical care is needed. Longfu Hospital works with Blessing Hands to help special families. Recently we helped get glasses for one high school girl.
Wei Senbao, his cousin Sencai and two other girls receive special sponsorship in this area. Click on the pictures to see more pictures.

New Jackets for Students
Students Receive Clothing Gifts from Chery.cn
New coats and clothes given to our Qinzhou Program
An automobile businessman has given new jackets and other clothes to our 160 high school students in Qinzhou. Volunteers will take the clothes to the high schools when they go to give the students their semester's tuition.
We featured our students who need sponsors at the Arts and Eats Festival in Morehead and the Moon Festival in Lexington. Several Chinese students volunteered to write people's names in Chinese for a donation. $133 was donated, and we collected contacts to send our email newsletter. We also made $36 from selling lemonade. Another volunteer team leaded by Christina Zhang and our board member, Erting Pan, manned a table at the Lexington Moon Festival on the same day.
School has started and many students still need sponsors. It is very rewarding to see students grow and fulfill their dreams of education. You can take a student to sponsor. See our students featured on Pinterest.com.
I was buying a book on Amazon today when I remembered their charity program to give .5% of my purchase to Blessing Hands. Put a smile on the face of a child.

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.
