Donation of child’s ox shoes

Bekah Hutchinson

Hello all,

My name is Rebekah Hutchinson, I am an orthotic resident in Buffalo, New York.
I am unsure if this is the venue for such request, but I figured it was worth a try.

My younger brother, who as special needs, was adopted from an orphanage in Xian, China. His adoption agency is organizing a reunion for children who were adopted to meet their caregivers and for their caregivers to meet their adoptive families. Many of the children at this orphanage are there because they were born with medical conditions. I recently received a request from the orphanage for donations of various medical supplies.

There is one child in particular who presents with, what looks like (from pictures and rough translation) mild CP and metatarsus adductus. She has a pair of straight last shoes that no longer fit her. They asked me if I could pool my resources to see if anyone would be willing to donate a pair (or two, if possible, for growth).

If you have the ability to donate, interest in more information or resources for me, please contact me directly. The reunion will be taking place in August and we would like to get them on the plane to her!

Thank you so much,

Rebekah Hutchinson
