Books to Huainan
As schools throughout the United States shift to remote learning in the wake of COVID-19, teachers and parents have had to find creative ways to engage and educate school children who can no longer be in the classroom. It has been no different for the nannies and caregivers in the Huainan orphanage.
Since the children could not return to school after the winter break, their caregivers have been working hard to provide different learning opportunities within the orphanage. In late February, we were asked if we could help purchase an assortment of activity books to help create more variety and stimulation. Of course, we said yes, and the children were so excited when the books arrived.
Kids like Shirley couldn’t wait to explore their new reading materials!
While we do not know when the children in our Orphaned Student Support program will be able to return to their schools, we are working with their caregivers to continue to find ways to bring learning to them within the orphanage.
LWB remains committed to serving the children in our programs even under challenging circumstances, and we’re thankful that the support of kind donors has allowed LWB to help these students stay engaged and busy!
