Remember Bashful Benjie?
Some LWB volunteers traveled to Jinjiang this past February and had a wonderful visit! They found the teachers were working hard and cared a lot for the children. “Bashful Benjie”, featured in our February 17th blog post, was one of the children they got to meet. While we were introducing Benjie to our readers, our volunteers were meeting him in person.
What they noticed about Benjie was that he has multiple special needs. In addition to a disability of his hands, it turns out that Benjie does in fact have a significant hearing impairment. This explains more about why he was not talking much when we blogged about him.
