Three Girls From Tianjin Children's Home To Receive Much-Needed Surgeries!
Dear 2007 CCAA Campers and Parents:
I am finally able to give you an update on children you met in the Tianjin Children’s Home.
CCAA has just announced that they are making arrangements for surgery and medical care for three special needs children. One of them is Guo Jing, who we said we would help. The other two are Wu Shang (age 10) and Chen Li Wen (age 9). All three girls have been in wheelchairs for years, but they might be able to stand up as a result of successful surgery. Remember, that was our goal!
All three girls have received a thorough examination and assessment by specialists. On Wednesday, they went to the hospital. For more detailed information, please visit CCAA’s website:
Let's give them our support. Let's make sure they know they are in our hearts, our thoughts, and our prayers. While donations from families are always welcome, even small gestures of affection from you campers will make these girls very happy. Perhaps you would like to send a letter, a note, or a card. If you do, please make it personal. For example, you might want to draw a picture inside or enclose a poem. Be creative.
Maybe you have a small gift you would like to send that will let the girls know we are with them in heart and in spirit. If you do, or if you would like to send a letter, please let me know by reply. You can send what you have to me at the address below. I will make sure it finds its way to the girls.
If you are interested in making a donation, please make a check payable to Gladney Center and earmarked “2007 camp”, I will make sure they are used on the three girls.
I am proud of all of you for your generosity, and proud to be your friend.
