St. July 16, 2012

For the fourth time in six years, Zhengwei Sheng,7, has flown from Beijing, China to Boston for treatment of extensive burns at Shriners Hospital. This week will be her fourth round of surgeries on her severely scalded upper torso and face. When Zhengwei, called Haodi, was a baby, a pot of boiling noodles poured down over her head...So operations since her initial treatment are required to release the reconstructed tissue so that she can breathe easier with less constriction on her throat and chest. The surgery and therapy will take about a one month stay in Boston.

Children’s Hope International Foundation provides hope for international orphans and children living in poverty through medical care, sustainable nutrition, safe drinking water, international adoption, and education; impacting the lives of thousands in China, Ethiopia, Colombia, Russia, Vietnam and India.
