Greater Independence for Katie
Katie is a nine-year-old student who has a lower-limb disability in our Believe in Me orphanage school in Jinjiang.
When our teacher training team visited Katie’s school in June, they noticed that Katie’s teachers were struggling to move her from place to place to keep up with the busy class. Also, they noticed that the classroom chairs were much too small for her and made her uncomfortable.
Thanks to donations to our Special Projects Fund, we were able to purchase some adaptive equipment to help Katie gain more independence!
Katie now has a comfortable wheelchair to help caregivers move her from place to place…
…a walker she can use for shorter distances (and more independence)…
…and an adjustable chair that will grow with her and keep her comfortable in the classroom!
We’re very grateful to supporters who allow us to immediately say, “Yes!” when a child in our classroom is in need. Katie will definitely benefit from her newfound independence!
