Little Red Scarf is in Lanzhou, Gansu province and provides financial support and encouragement to children suffering from congenital heart disease. In addition, they provide families with post-operative care and help the children sustain a healthy lifestyle.
On April 11th, 2011, doctors prepared for Jing Bo to undergo cleft palate surgery at the Lanzhou University Hospital. TFISH partner Little Red Scarf was able to visit him after the surgery on April 13th. His mother informed LRS that Jing Bo's surgery was successful. His heart rate was a little bit slow, however due to Jing Bo's taller than average height, doctors were confident he would recover quickly.
Jing Bo's surgery was funded in part by The Smile Train and in part by Jing Bo's family. The family had to pay just under 2000 yuan. When LRS visited they brought Jing Bo a box of milk and some food suited to his recovery.
Three years have now passed since Jing Bo's surgery. Jing Bo has remained healthy and happy. He is even growing taller and more handsome every day. You can read more on Little Red Scarf's blog (in Chinese).
