Kaifeng PT camp
Last weekend a physical therapy training camp was held in Kaifeng, Henan province for children in the orphanage and in foster homes. We are so grateful to Anhui Children’s Hospital for allowing two of their top therapists to travel to Kaifeng for us to evaluate children and give recommendations on their care. Each foster family was given a piece of PT equipment, such as a peanut ball or boppy, to take home, as well as being given specific exercises to work on with their children. All the kids thought the peanut balls were very cool!
This is the first of three PT training camps being held this year for LWB. We have another camp coming up in June for the children in the Changde orphanage in Hunan, and then our largest camp to date (for over 100 children) will be held in July in Yunnan province. Six PTs and OTs are making their travel reservations to China now, and we know they will have an incredible journey. We are still in need of an additional pediatric PT for the June trip.
