Following a year of very generous support from the BISS Community the PET have been able to donate RMB150,000 to the Heart to Heart Organisation. Heart to Heart is a Shanghai based charity which provides corrective heart surgery to children from indigent families across China. With our donation they are able to provide surgery to five little children.
This morning members of the PET and a BISS Alum visited Li Xuran from the Henan Province. He is 5 years old and was diagnosed with complex CHD when he was 6 months old. He had his first operation in March 2014. The doctors are hopeful this will be his second and last surgery. When we visited this morning Xuran was still in an isolated ward as he is not recovering as quickly as doctors hoped. The nurses and staff provide a loving, caring environment and we are very thankful we could make a difference in this family’s life.
As further children are allocated to our donation we hope to be able to continue to visit.
