Juan Juan, from Guangzhou廣州花都大華村虎嶺莊, is a child with Cerebral Palsy and epilepsy. She was born in 2012 and was taken care of by her grandmother as parents are divorced. Grandfather could not work due to mental illness. Old couples also have a 12 year old son of their own. Juan Juan family is residence of Sichuan and therefore could not benefit from welfare of Guangzhou. This family of four lives in a rental premise of very poor condition. Grandmother earns a living by doing some simple handicraft at home making just RMB30 per day while taking care of Juan Juan and her son. Juan Juan has never received proper rehabilitation training.

With severely poor nutrition, she looked like a 3 or 4 years old child at the age of 8. Director of Cerecare Foundation visited Juan Juan and her family and decided to donate a special chair to help Juan Juan to learn how to eat in a relatively proper position. We also donated a ladder back chair so that Juan Juan could have a chance to learn how to stand with assistance. To minimize grandmother’s burden, Cerecare Foundation also support the family financially so that grandmother could spend more time to train Juan Juan instead of doing handicraft to make ends meet. A rehabilitation therapist of東莞市殘疾人康復中心 volunteered to give guidance to grandmother in training Juan Juan.
