Yu Disabled Persons’ Association is located in Zhengzhou city of Henan Province. It is a non-governmental organization working with disabled persons. The organization aims to help people with disabilities to get out of self-closing and encourage them to be confident and independent.
In the morning of November 13, with the guide of the volunteers, some of disabled persons came to Xi Xin Zhuan village and visited Liu Shao, a disabled person who lives alone.
They are 72 wheelchairs that purchased by Yu Disabled Persons’ Association.
According to the villager, Liu Shao’s leg was injured in a fire accident when he was 3. One of his legs was amputated. His mother died when he was 5. He has been raised by the families in the village. Later a tumor was found growing in his disabled leg. He had to accept another amputation, which made him cannot walk at all.
Hearing this, Yu Disabled Persons’ Association sent him wheelchair, hoping to improve his life condition. Yuan Haijun also brought him ointment and medicine for his leg to recover.
