Rays of Hope

Big smile from Kunhao back to you!
Big smile from Kunhao back to you!

Dear Magic Hospital community,

In the light of the developments regarding COVID-19, we want to say that our thoughts are with you and everybody  affected by the virus around the globe. We very much hope that you, your families and friends are all well and safe. 

Due to the uncertainty and risks that came with the spread of the Covid outbreak, we had decided end of January to put all our activities in China on hold. Our activites will resume when the situation is more stable and the safety of the children, staff and volunteers is again guaranteed. We are seeing the first shimmers of hope that this may be soon...

However, we could bring a smile before the lockdown to 8 year old Kunhao, a boy with Down syndrom. 

Kunhao lives in a poor area in Guizhou province. He had to undergo heart surgery in Huaxin hospital earlier this year. This is where our volunteers from our Playtime program met him. The sweetness of the boy and the love of his parents touched us deeply. He recovered well from the heart surgery, surrounded by his doting family. However, he was not going back to school, as for him attending to school is a challenge in itself 

Education and proper care have been shown to improve quality of life for children with Down syndrome. So we wanted to support him in his physical and mental development, especially while his school education being interrupted.

After exchanges with the boy's mother, Mirjam, MH China Director decided to provide educational and developmental toys and tools for this boy through our Abracadbra program. 

The shopping cart filled quickly with toys and tools stuff this wonderful boy: wooden music instruments, Duplo, Play doh, learning puzzles and a drawing board, and a four wheel bike which will be sent to him directly. 

Laughter and smiles remain important, especially in these challenging times. His mother sent us some images, and we hope his smile warms your heart and brings you some positive thoughts and distractions.

Thank you for your ongoing support, please continue to stay well and safe, and we hope till soon!

Warmly, Claudia

Happiness!
