Every year thousands of families come on Shanghai seeking the best medical care in China. These families, often quite poor, have come having never left their home town before, will stay in the hospital for several months. Often two accompany each child, sharing a bed, eating whatever is available, while sharing a hospital room with several other families. Boredom, family pressures, culture shock set in and an already difficult situation is even harder.
Cindy’s Corner at Renji Hospital Pudong is a place of rest. Located in the Pediatric Liver Center, Cindy’s Corner is where families can come to get toys, clothes, and treats. Volunteers come to have simple art or music classes to bring some joy in a difficult situation.
- gently used toys, especially for babies under one year.
