Volunteering Solutions offer an unmatched volunteering opportunity for gap year travelers at the disabled children’s Center in China, which is located in the south of Shanghai. The Centre accepts children with Cerebral Palsy. A child with Cerebral Palsy has trouble in controlling the muscles of his body. Normally, the brain tells the rest of the body exactly what to do and when to do it. But because of Cerebral Palsy, depending on what part of the brain is affected, a child might not be able to walk, talk, eat, or interact in the way other kids do. The children at the centre, generally, face more difficulties in  learning, relaxing and playing than other children - and this is where you come in!! This is a truly worthwhile and rewarding volunteer program in China - Shanghai.
