Every year we have several Australian student groups come to Little Flower to volunteer. This month we were joined by a group of young women from Killester College. They were brave enough to leave their warm summer weather and brave the freezing temperatures of northern China!
The volunteer team
Many of them had previous experience taking care of babies. Even the girls who didn’t have a lot of child care experience did an amazing job in our baby home.
A sweet smile warms many hearts.
Look, we found another cool way to have fun!
Little Ke, who often doesn’t feel well due to his chemotherapy treatment, enjoys having someone cuddle him and play with him.
Little Xiao and his friend found a warm, sunny spot to play near the window.
Sweet dreams, little Yu!
Working with abandoned children is always an emotional, life changing experience. During goodbyes on the last day of service it’s often the volunteers who are the ones shedding tears. All of us at Little Flower are grateful to the Killester girls for sharing their time and talents with our little ones!
