THE GREEN LION
This childcare home cares for 20-25 Vietnamese children with a mixture of disabilities daily. The main role participants will play at this project is caring for the children. This will be in the form of comforting them, playing games, and socialising with them. Previous experience in this field would be helpful but not essential. The key area for improving the quality of the children?s lives is enhancing their speech and muscular capacity. Daily regimes are carried out for the children, in which you too can play a part. Other activities encouraged and greatly enjoyed by the children include playing games, dancing and singing. Painting, art and other means of creativity is encouraged by the hospital for the children.
