Shalom Leprosy Compassion Ministry:People with leprosy are sent to isolated villages where they are abandoned and forgotten by society. The Shalom Leprosy Compassion Ministry has a special place in its heart for these people and organizes groups of volunteers to travel to villages plagued with leprosy in order to provide medical, living, and psychological assistance. The Shalom Leprosy Compassion Ministry is located in Kunming, Yunnan.
On 2016, Shengen continued his visit to the leprosy villages, volunteers, such as Liang Ping, could only visit Yiliang County this month due to transportation reason. There, visited the sheep pens and the ditches in rehabilitation village. They were also mainly there to give the survivors medical help.
1: Medical Services:
9 months 5 days ago, we went to the of Yiliang County with his team to visit the rehabilitation center. Our greatest need is Liang Ping because she is a doctor who specializes in acupuncture and medicine. Liang Ping’s gave BoCai’s uncle acupuncture. BoCai is now living in their home, since its convenient for him there to attend school. His back was very painful. He's the one most looking forward to is Dr. Liang Ping, because the acupuncture and medicine are very helpful to him. But because they could not continue giving him acupuncture treatment, his condition will relapse in a week.
Those particularly in need of medical services are the elderly women, particularly in terms of gynecological problems. Unfortunately, Liang Ping cannot help them solve that issues and only give them acupuncture to help ease their pain. Their bodily functions are highly affected due to nutritional deficiencies. BoCai’s grandfather is really in need of the acupuncture because he has pain in both his bac and legs. When the pain lapse, he is even unable to carry simple things. The medicine Dr. Liang Ping makes for his back and acupuncture is particularly good. This is his partner who lives outside of the village to recover- Grandmother Li. She is very sick and have been waiting at the rehabilitation village to let Liang Ping give her a good look. This are the medicines Liang Ping prescribed for her illness.
Baocai’s grandfather is most in need of the medicine Liang Ping makes. Unfortunately, it is few in number and often unable to ensure their needs. So, Dr. Liang Ping decided to teach them how to make it themselves in times of need.
2: Helping BaoCai and BaoLiang’s Education Funding:
Baocai and BaoLiang is another year older now. As they get older, we will probably be seeing an increase in many things- maybe they'll add more trouble, especially BaoCai. After all, is already 10 years old child. He is now receiving helping from rehabilitation village and living in the village next to it. First, it is to help him obtain an education, and second, is to not let him live under the influence of rehabilitation village and his mentally ill father.
Little BaoLiang is also growing up. She is now starting to learn how to write. Today, she helped her brother and grandma by signing papers for the transparent fish grants! Although she is now carefree, who knows what her future pans are. Shengen and the volunteers are hoping to visit and communicate with her continuously to oversee her growing up.
Liang Ping hopes to represent every one for their love and care for the BaoCai siblings!
