A rehabilitation camp for families of disabled teenagers will be held in Jurong, Zhenjiang, Jiangsu, from April 29 to May 2, 2017. It is estimated that twenty families will take part in the event.

Aiming to provide a chance for the families to recharge their bodies and mind, the camp will be supported by the Amity Foundation and hosted by "Home of The Reed", a civil charity organization based in Zhenjiang. According to the Home, it will help the teenagers with disabilities and their family members reduce pressure through professional methods and the faith. Meanwhile, the camp will be a platform for them to fit into the world and have equal communication as well as mutual assistance.

For a large shortfall in the funding, a bazaar will be held in a church of Zhenjiang to raise money on April 23.

Last June, twenties families from places like Zhenjiang and Nanjing participated in a six-day family retreat held by the Amity Foundation and the local political consultative conference. Several expertises in aid for disability from Joni and Friends, an international organization to advance disability ministry, and more than 40 volunteers also attended the camp.
