Concerted efforts help disabled children out of virus gloom


In a small farmhouse in Qin'an County, northwest China's Gansu Province, a gradient plank was laid on several steps where a girl five and a half years of age, who goes by the name of Xiaoyi, walked gingerly from end to end to practice keeping balance.


Suffering from cerebral palsy, Xiaoyi's language ability and physical coordination are far behind other children her age, thus mastering even a seemingly simple skill requires great efforts.


The sudden coronavirus outbreak that emptied public places including rehabilitation centers has brought much inconvenience to children like Xiaoyi, but it has not blocked their path to recovery.


To help these children tide over the difficult time and continue practicing, groups of people in China are taking actions together to offer much-needed assistance.
