Ganzhou City is a clean, quiet city---and full of neon. Most of the people here speak a local dialect, although Mandarin is also spoken by many. Thankfully, we have local translators who have offered to help us understand this dialect.
Local journalists are doing stories on a few children, beginning with filming them in their villages before we arrived, following them in clinic and through their operations, and then after their return home. Their stories are on the local news each night.
In a little bit, I am going to a village to see an 11-year old girl who received an operation from Interplast on our last visit. It will be great to see this “after” and to see how the surgery has made a difference in her life.
