Travel: Visiting the Agape Foster Home

廊坊寄养家庭11-20.doc

November 20th, approximately 8:00-1:00pm

Dear Students,

This time we will go to visit a foster home for orphans with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) in Langfang, Hebei Province. These children have brittle bones so they can easily break their bones. They have come from orphanages all over the country to this foster home because it has become a nationally recognized center for helping children with OI. When we go to the foster home, we will have a chance to learn more about the background of the foster home and the children, interact with the children and their caregivers, play games with the children, and tour the foster home. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about these precious children. (We will come back to school at about 1:00pm, so you can take some snacks to eat when you feel hungry.)

Please note: This activity replaces one hour of class time. Students with morning classes can re-schedule one hour of class time. Students with afternoon classes can attend one hour of class that day. Activities are free for student visa holders; all others: cost is 100RMB.
