The three primary school we help in Longfu Township in Du'an County of Guangxi Province received their spring supplies from Blessing Hands recently. Ping pong is a favorite sport, so sports equipment included ping pong balls as well as basketballs, badminton rackets, hula hoops, and jump ropes. We collect money by cash jars in Chinese restaurants to support this program.While Dr. Dai was visiting the three schools he took foot measurements so all the students can have new shoes for spring thanks to you wonderful sponsors.

Great News about the Shoe Campaign.
A long-time donor saw our newsletter about the Easter Shoes. He said he would give $1,000 if we could find donors to match his gift. I immediately said I would take his challenge. How about it? Will you give to help kids have shoes in Longfu Township. We already have $50 from a facebook donor. Help the kids have new shoes.
The Lin Wang kids had such old, dirty, ill-fitting
shoes when we visited in 2014. Our volunteers decided on the spot to measure the kids for new shoes and get them to them as soon as
possible. We have been giving shoes there since then.
There are two more schools we want to have shoes this spring.
Thanks and Blessings,
Founder/Director of Blessing Hands
