Meet Bowen Wright.
Bowen is a young 15-year old who lives on Bowen Island, BC Canada with her Mom, Dad, two little sisters (Casey and Brinley), little brother (Cooper) and dog Juno.
She goes to school at Rockridge Secondary, in West Vancouver. She takes a ferry boat every day to get there because there are no high schools on Bowen Island. She likes to play volleyball, surf, swim, draw, read, and listen to music! Someday she very much hopes to visit Nepal and the SIRC!
Bowen also works on Bowen Island at an Italian restaurant where she makes pizza. Bowen has used her earnings from this job to buy lots of toys, colouring books & markers, as well as putty and some treats for the kids at SIRC. How kind!!
Many of these kids are children of carers who in turn are taking care of family members. One teen girl is a caregiver herself to her father, and she particularly loved the stickers. The young man in a wheelchair is a patient and worked hard at making shapes with the putty. The little boy so creative with his shapes and the great big smile I have written about earlier re-posting one of Dr Stan’s reflections.
Yesterday afternoon, after the morning’s therapy is done, the gifts were presented to the kids, who were just delighted with the goodies! Check out the photos.
Bowen, be very proud of yourself for bringing such sheer joy to these kids, your generosity, thoughtfulness and kindness is gratefully appreciated.
A big DHANYBAD from all at SIRC in the Saanga Hills! xo
