Life for children with disabilities in China is hard.
Some children and their families live in a daily struggle with poverty and stress.
Lack of resources and social stigma create pressures that are difficult to bear.
Other children have experienced abandonment because their family couldn't cope.
All of them are in need of vital services. Services that will help them feel loved, have hope for the future, and opportunities to fulfil their dreams.

Jia Xin's story

Jia Xin’s family live in a small apartment of around 60 square metres. Most of the family’s furniture has been collected from what others no longer wanted.
 
Jia Xin’s parents love her very much, but much of their income has been spent desperately trying to meet her medical needs and find answers to her developmental delays. Born prematurely, she needed extra medical care and their expenses grew.
 
Jia Xin's family struggled to find the help they needed to support her fully. During the COVID pandemic, life became so difficult that Jia Xin’s Mother nearly gave up.
 
Through the specialised intervention of the Family Partners (FPP) teachers and therapists, Jia Xin is now opening up to the world. She is able to use her hands more skilfully and is starting to speak. She loves the outings and activities run by FPP and her social skills are blossoming.
 
Her mother now has hope that her future is bright and is daring to dream about all Jia Xin could grow to become.
 
By joining Walk the Wall and raising funds, you will be helping create life-changing opportunities for families like Jia Xin’s.
