Faith and Virtue News – 7.9.2015 – reported that in the Cangzhou diocese of Xian County, in the parish of Zhangzhuang, a care-home for people with disabilities has been established in the Nan Danqiao area.  Initially this project met with indifference and a lack of concern from the local populace, but after much effort and hard work on the part of the project sponsor – Wang Bin (王斌) – this situation changed and people started rallying to the cause.  This has included the active support of a Christian vicar and six nuns who live and work in the area.  This cause has united the entire community in the love and concern for well-being of people with disability, and the concern to make their lives better and more fulfilling.

It is reported that an idea for a care home for people with disabilities started in the local Catholic Church at Nan Danqiao – where a man with disabilities named Qi Wanlong (齐万龙)  – who is a member of Catholics with Disabilities – requested a 10 am Morning Mass in his family home.  Afterwards those in attendance sat together and discussed the difficulties surrounding a life with disabilities.  Everybody then hugged one another and life-long friendships were formed.  When Wang Bin arrived with his know how and financial backing – this idea was made reality.

河北:残疾人关爱之家在献县正式成立

信德网讯 9月7日,沧州教区献县张庄堂区残疾人关爱之家在南单桥正式成立。起初,在缺少对团体支持与关切的情况下,此项活动发起人王斌为此付出了艰辛的努力与大量的时间,之后,在他的影响下,有六位修女及教区周文书副主教都给予了支持和帮助,直至今天,有更多的爱心人士加入,一起为残疾人提供帮助,给予关爱。

据悉,这次活动原本在南单桥教堂举行,但为照顾一位叫齐万龙的残疾教友,把这次活动放在了他的家中举行。上午10点,活动正式开始。弥撒后,大家踊跃的分享见证了自己的生活经历。活动在祝福歌声中圆满落幕,大家彼此牵手,拥抱祝福。
