IB CAS Students - Dedicated to improving Zhi Xiong’s Quality of Life

We have started the Zhi Xiong Project. From the beginning of Year 12, we started visiting the Blue Sky Healing Home. This orphanage focuses primarily on children with disabilities. Here we were lucky enough to meet Zhi Xiong, who was born with a muscle and joint congenital disorder called arthrogryposis- restricting his movements. Even though he may look different compared to you and me, after getting to know him, he is basically like any other child- playful, cheerful and curious. If there is one thing he lacks its independency. The Zhi Xiong Project aims to solve this by raising money in order to fund an electric wheelchair, to make Zhi Xiong’s dreams a reality.

We used the Christmas Fayre as an opportunity to start our fundraising process. Even though we were able to raise 4500 RMB, a small proportion of the total needed, it was a great start to the project.  By selling hand warmers, muffins, mugs, and offering face painting, and a Nerf gun shooting, our stall contributed a little to the Christmas spirit. Our goal however is to put that wheelchair under Zhi Xiong’s Christmas tree.

We are lucky enough to call ourselves fortunate, but Zhi Xiong isn’t. He has a dream: a sense of independency. Let’s make his dream a reality. This project will encompass support from: doctors, sponsors but above all YOU. Ultimately the goals of this project it to open new possibilities for Zhi Xiong, to give him a future and a better quality of life. We are still in the beginning stages of Project Zhi Xiong, but with your help and our hard work, let us turn a dream into a reality! After all, isn’t that what Christmas is all about.

If you want to find out more, get involved, or contribute to the funding this project, please do not hesitate to contact us at Joshua.nestler@gmx.com. All help is greatly appreciated.
