Those children are probably shy and living within their own world. However, some of them have excellent talents in arts and music. A show held in the underground square of the Mall of the World (Huacheng Square) last Saturday, gave the local passers-by a chance to learn more about the special group - the visually impaired, autistic and other disabled children.
The charitable show organized by the local rehabilitation centers for the special communities invited a talent pianist and autistic patient, the 12-year-old He Tianhang who has received over five years of musical training, to perform the famous melody “Canon”. The 19-year-old visually impaired girl Feng Lanting performed beading the handicrafts. She and her teacher had shared their own stories of overcoming the difficulties, hoping to break the public stereotype that those who have visual disable can only survive by massage works.
A public charity concert will be held at 14:30 - 16:30 at the Summer Square of the GT Plaza in the Zhujiang New Town. It will provide a chance for all the special and normal children to play harmoniously together.
More events including a salon, a workshop and handicraft charity sales will continue throughout May and June to prolong the education and public concern on the special children. The co-organizer China National Radio (CRI) also hopes to call for more attentions on air, encouraging the society to support and help them.
