They say that creative therapy enhances your emotional wellbeing, I guess if the smile on Thuong's face is anything to go by then that is certainly true. Since starting our creative therapy program 3 years ago and building our new room 1 year ago the kids just cant get enough, and we cannot get enough of them to the room. It is a place that gives them joy and in return much joy to us and the volunteers that help out.
This morning, Helping Hands arranged to take 3 children and 1 adult to the local hospital. They went for x-rays and general health checkups. Dung, Lan, Mai & Lan are healthy and healing! Thank you to everyone who supports us and makes trips like these possible!
With the help of our much loved volunteer Nicola, Helping Hands was able to purchase three new rehabilitation support chairs. These chairs are slightly different from our other rehab chairs as they are able to recline. They are very suitable for a few of our children who could not sit in the other ones! As you can see, we have some very happy boys trying out the new chairs!!
Binh is a child from room 6 who requires a lot of extra love and attention. Hue is a teenager who is also in room 6. We now pay Hue a small salary to look after Binh. She has become like a second mother to him and they have formed a very special relationship. Binh now has consistency in his life and has become a lot more confident! Great job Hue!
