**Title**: The Evolving Mindset: A Journey to Help Hearing-Impaired Children in Modern China
In the process of China’s journey to modernization, its people have not only witnessed tremendous progress in everyday life, but have also embraced the mindset and lifestyle that come with modernity. In today’s episode of our special series “The Evolving Mindset,” CGTN’s Li Dongning focuses on a group of ordinary Chinese dedicated to helping hearing-impaired children.
With great dedication, a 29-year-old woman named Wong has been working for a charity fund in Beijing, committed to supporting children with hearing disabilities. Through her work, Wong has helped numerous children gather the support they need to integrate into society. These children have expressed their gratitude through heartfelt handicrafts and letters.
Driven by her own experiences and the kindness she witnessed during the COVID-19 pandemic, Wong made the decision to work full-time for a charity. Her choice has provided her with a deeper understanding of people with hearing loss, a group that often faces disadvantages in society. As a volunteer, Wong has visited hearing-impaired families and participated in activities aimed at distributing cognitive learning packages.
In China alone, there are currently over 27 million people living with hearing loss, with eight million diagnosed with severe cases. One significant solution for those grappling with hearing impairment is the use of cochlear implants. While it does not restore normal hearing, a cochlear implant can help wearers understand speech and perceive sounds in their environment. Wong has played a crucial role in helping numerous children who have undergone cochlear implant surgeries reclaim their lives, enabling them to rediscover a world of sound that is often taken for granted.
Take the inspiring story of ten-year-old Wang Chijun, who received his first cochlear implant at just 10 months old. Wang’s experience inspired his mother to take on charity work and become a teacher at a local hearing recovery training school. With the aim of helping more children recover, Wang’s mother provides psychological counseling to parents, shares Wang’s experience, organizes parent training, and teaches rehabilitation techniques.
Charity workers like Wong and Wang’s mother are making a significant impact, helping countless individuals regain their lives. The heartwarming trend of dedicating time, energy, and resources to improve the lives of those less fortunate is on the rise in China. We call upon everyone to join in and play their part in weaving threads of empathy and kindness in the fabric of our society, creating a beautiful tapestry of compassion, love, and understanding.
