Outdoor playground for Chinese Orphanage
Organized by: Marnie Wu
This Chinese Orphanage raising 24 children needs an outdoor playground so that the children can go outside, get exercise, and have fun.
Most of the children currently don't go to school because of either Cerebral Paulsy or Downs Syndrome. These children never go outside because the limited number of staff can't manage them all on an outing. They don't even go for a walk.
The playground will be right outside the orphanage building so will allow staff to manage bringing the children in and out safely. The $8000 funding will cover the costs of the playground equipment and also soft rubber ground underneath.
The supplier was chosen carefully and has a proven track record. Jian and I have visited their existing playgrounds and can attest that they stand up well to long term wear and tear and meet safety requirements.
If we surpass the fundraising goals we can also provide a sun and rain shelter above the playground so the kids will be able to get outside rain or shine.
