The story of Guo Bin (Binbin) continues to inspire. After doctors announced that he would be discharged from the C-MER Dennis Lam Eye Hospital, the boy was given a send-off ceremony, where crowds gathered to watch him as he smiled, clapped and danced before going home. The event marked Binbin’s first public appearance since he fell victim to a horrific attack in August, in which he lost both his eyes and was admitted to the hospital.
Binbin’s mother said he can now put on his own clothes, brush his teeth and use the stairs. She addressed the crowd at the ceremony and thanked them for their support and care, saying that Shenzhen, the hospital’s location, was like their new second home.
Doctors hope to fit him with navigation sensors in the future so that he can get around on his own in familiar places. For now, Binbin will return to his hometown so that he can start school again.
