A Mother’s Love, a Team’s Help

Roy (age 9), who lives in rural Sichuan province, was born with mild cerebral palsy. He and his mother recently spent a week in Kunming, Yunnan province, at Bless China International, a non-profit clinic that provides free physical therapy. After several long rounds of exercise on his last day, Roy received custom orthotics, which will help him walk at home. Many parts of rural China lack medical facilities to treat cerebral palsy, leaving the responsibility and cost of treatment to patients’ families.
