Once again Christmas is coming up quicker than ever with gingerbread men, snow-capped window displays and twinkling lights making a comeback. To many Christmas is about spending time with family and loved ones, having delicious dinners and sharing joy with those around us.
But not everyone is fortunate enough to have family and friends to celebrate and enjoy the full spirit of Christmas with. Yes, we are talking about the orphaned children with disabilities. The good news is, it’s never too late to share with them the Christmas festivity.
Shanghai Fresh Start Rotaract in association with a social enterprise YBC Health Care, which specializes in children rehabilitation, brings you Christmas visiting activity that is the ultimate way of giving back and marking the true spirit of the holiday. This saturday, we will visit the Huixin orphanage and bring these kids some Christmas spirits.
Shanghai Fresh Start Rotaract 联合专注于儿童康复的社会企业医佰康 一起，发起这次圣诞节活动，将回馈社会和传递圣诞精神结合， 这周六，我们将给慧心康健院的孩子们一同度过。
They are a group of special children due to congenital or postnatal causes, most of which are Down syndrome (21 chromosome syndrome). For them, walking, speaking, school, self-care and even survival is a kind of extravagant hope, serious obstacles affect the child’s life, and also bring a lingering shadow of the family. The long-term rehabilitation treatment process, the economic pressure and the psychological burden are the main factors that affect children and families.
Kids with Down Syndrome
In fact, as long as early detection, early intervention, the majority of children can still complete the basic life learning ability. Usually, most special children, who can get continuous treatment of 3-6 months, at the expense of around 20k-30k RMB, could achieve very obvious effects. 0-6 years old is their rehabilitation gold treatment period.

It is a very specialized field, and as a social enterprise, YBC Health Care has done an amazing job. We believe, learning from a successful example will inspire more to devote into social innovation and social entrepreneurship.
Our devotion and love, will help the children walk again, learn to say thank you, and even can take care of themselves and study. Children that have gone through the treatment can also have much better chance of being adopted and have much better and happier life.
