Another healed heart - Li Jinhang

December 15, 2015

Another story of heart - another child saved!

Every year I look  forward to Christmas. And honestly - who is not? Especially when you live in Shanghai as it usually means that  there is either an exciting holiday waiting or we are about to enter a plane back home to our loved ones. But as we are packing our big suitcases and get our the presents together we intend to forget that there are many out there who are not as lucky.

 

The story of little Li Jinhang is one to remind us of that:

 

 

 

When Li Jinhang was 6 months old, he caught a cold and had an inflammed lung. The doctor suggested he have an ultrasound exam and then he was diagnosed with ASD.

There are 6 members in the family.

His grandmother is 80 years old and has heart disease. His mother stays home to take care of the 3 kids (12 and 3 year old sisters) and the grandmother. She has no income.

 

The family has 5 mu farm land to grow wheat and corn. The father works the farm and when the farm isn't too busy he works in the local mini factory as a manual laborer. None of the 3 children are healthy. The elder sister has epilepsy and the younger sister always has colds and the flu. The family is now in debt 50,000 rmb.

This is a sad story indeed - would it not have been for "Heart to Heart" who helped Li Jinhang receiving a life saving  heart surgery this September in Shanghai.  When he arrived at Yodak hosptial his condition  turned out to be so serious that it required for him to undergo open heart surgery.

As partial sponsor of the operation, H2H had organized for me to visit the boy in hospital after the operation. But fortunately his recovery went much faster than expected. And before I was able to adjust my time schedule he was released from hospital to go home with his mother.

 

I couldn´t have been  happier for him!

 

I want to say THANK YOU!

to those wonderful people who helped making this happen by  sharing their moments of joy with me,

let me live my passion for photography and together we could help saving another childs life!

Another "circle of happiness" is completed

 

 

 

 

Wherever you are in this world meanwhile - I hope you get to enjoy you the most wonderful holiday season!

My best wishes and good health to you all for the coming year!

 

With love from Shanghai
