A medical aid team of Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers arrived at a center for people with disabilities in Freetown, capital of Sierra Leone, to provide medical assistance to the disabled orphans on December 30, 2017.

The disabled orphans, ranging in age from 5 to 25, make a living by making indigenous costumes and wooden crafts.

The medical experts physically examined the orphans and employees at the center, taught them how to prevent infectious diseases, donated anti-malarial medicine and books to them, disinfected the surrounding areas, and tested the drinking water.

In addition, the medical experts put on performances and made Chinese dumplings with the orphans to celebrate the New Year together, making them feel warm.

Although China and Sierra Leone are far apart geographically, the two have established a close relationship, said Huang Lei, an expert with the team, adding that they hope to help the poor children in Sierra Leone to shake off poverty and fight diseases and build a better future for them.
