12 June 2014 - Franklin, Tenn - In early 2015, Show Hope will be opening their fifth Special Care Center in China. Located in Nanyang, this new care center will provide highly specialized medical care for orphans in the area, with the capacity to provide medical care to 72 children at one time.

Show Hope is excited to expand their scope of work to Nanyang, which is a city with a population of more than 10.5 million and is the third largest city in the Henan Province. This special care center will be three stories, more than 12,600 square feet and housed in a brand new complex developed as a civil affairs project. The facility will start breaking ground later this year.

"This new unit will not only allow us to serve a greater number of children with special needs, but in time, we trust it will also greatly increase the survival rates of children with acute medical needs in this region," share Scott Hasenbalg, Show Hope's Executive Director.

One of those children is Desmond, pictured to the left, who was admitted to one of Show Hope's Special Care Centers when he was just six months old. Desmond was diagnosed with arthrogryposis, a condition causing stiffness of the joints that can severely inhibit mobility. With the resources available to him at the care center, he has begun to walk with special casts and the assistance of his nannies, and the staff at the care center and at Show Hope have high hopes that one day soon he will be able to walk on his own.

As previously reported, there are high costs associated with sustaining a center that provides high-quality care to children like Desmond who have acute medical needs. In fact, the cost to operate the Nanyang Care Center will be more than $30,000 a month, and Show Hope is asking for help in funding this center for its first month of existence. For donations made by June 30th, the impact of each financial gift will be doubled, thanks to a generous matching gift of up to $15,000, totaling $30,0000 to fund a full month of operations.
