Our Severely Burned Haodi Again in Boston

For a 2-year-old burn victim, it must be hard to understand why she has to leave her friends and family behind in China, only to experience increased physical pain from yet another surgery. Sheng Zheng Wei, nicknamed Haodi, from Shandong Province, China, and ‘adopted’ by many in America is back in Boston again, on her road to health and normal appearance..

Her first trip to Boston in 2007 saved her life. This current visit to Shriners Burn Hospital is to continue the surgery needed to make necessary changes for Haodi’s life and looks.  Haodi was less than 1-year-old when a tipped pot of boiled noodles poured down her face in 2006. The burns were so severe, that her neck and chest fused together making it extremely difficult to breath and eat.
There was a national outcry for help in the media and on the internet in China.
With the support of donors, Children’s Hope was able to fly Haodi and her mom to Boston on the last day of 2006. It took expert surgery at Shriner’s Hospital to keep Haodi alive. After nine months of operations and therapy, Haodi and her mom were able to go home to family in China. The family knew however, Haodi would have to return to continue for several rounds of reconstructive surgery.  In March (2008), Children’s Hope flew Haodi and her mom to Boston for a second trip, as well as finding volunteer families to assist with transportation and housing. The former visits were a success in literally saving Haodi’s life and working toward restoration of her face.

The care at Shriners is free, but there are transportation and everyday expenses for Haodi and her mom while in Boston.

Mission Accomplished - 5 tons of rice for North Korean families

Add The first truck, loaded with one ton of rice
from you who gave, gets ready to rollcaption
Thanks to your immediate response to the need for 5 tons of rice for North Korea, it was met-
plus hundreds of 40 gallon containers of Kimchi, 170 bundles of clothes @ 45lbs each plus 10 sewing machines were sent in to a village of 400 who would otherwise be left without sustenance. I don't have adequate words to express my gratitude to you so I must simply say "Thanks!"

If you were unable to participate in this effort a few weeks ago, there is still time for you to join in.The need continues. New and genuine doors come open every week. I hope you can trust me when I say that I know the people doing this - and I know it is getting done with integrity!  There is real suffering and hunger and you are making a difference.

Can you buy a ton of rice to feed the truly deprived families of North Korea?

This is a nation closed to the world - but open to our help through my trusted friends .A ton of rice costs $1000 but you need to include another $150 to help us help them make it happen. Every gift helps!

You can help right here, right now:
With deepest Gratitude
