Caiqi came to Bethel December of 2016. He is 1 1/2 years old. Caiqi in the last few months has become attached to his teachers and caregivers. At the beginning, he didn’t know how to be held and would push back or arch his back. He now enjoys being picked up and cuddled and will cry if he feels he is being ignored. He also makes a lot more expressions and will cry if he is upset and smile when you interact with him
Love is Blind in Zhengzhou is located within the Zhengzhou social welfare centre, who have provided a space for Bethel to care for their visually impaired orphans. The centre was opened in December 2011. We have some wonderful ayis and teachers at this project and we hope that our project in the Zhengzhou orphanage will be an example to other orphanages, and that we can be a witness of high-quality care. These visually impaired children in Zhengzhou live with foster families in the orphanage and Bethel provides specialized care, therapy and education for these children.
