About this Artisan
Hearts and Hands
In Yunnan Province, China, men and women with disabilities develop new skills and earn income through employment as artisans with Hearts & Hands. Those who are Deaf or otherwise physically limited—who previously found little prospect for survival—now realize “plans that will prosper and not harm them, plans for a hope and a future.” Huang Li, who leg was amputated as a child, is one artisan whose life has been changed. When asked what her sewing work means to her, she gave thanks to God, saying, “We can eat.”
