My first close contact with migrant laborers, who work at construction site, is attributed to more than two hours from the charity bazaar on Sunday. For me, the life of those people is too distant and I have only learned somewhat from the news. Thanks to the charity bazaar, I really got to know more about their life-- the dust, the tiredness, the lunch box, and the shabby place they live in. All of those things are just as remote as in another world. Since I have always been taken care of by my parents, I did not know how cruel the society is! Though short, the charity bazaar touched my heart and I lose myself in my thoughts.
When picking out clothes at the charity bazaar, the migrant laborers only ask whether the clothes are wear-resistant and offer good movement. I have found that they only have small bills like 1yuan and 5yuan. One man can not afford a pair of trousers since he only gets $.63 at hand. Adding to this, streamed bun is and will always be their dinner for weeks and months. I feel very sad from what I have seen and learned. Their life is too tough that common people can not understand. By the way, I greatly admire the work done by the volunteers of Mulan. They have a high spirit of dedication. For example, a girl volunteer, was patiently telling one of the children at the construction site that he can go to the Work University to learn skills and that guitar lessons were free.
