The following article is about a home visit in rural China made by Light of Love, a student organization dedicated to improving health and education for underprivileged populations in China. For more information about them, please
Yesterday afternoon, a fifth-grade teacher Liu Shanshan, fourth grade teacher He Qiang, and Xu Wang made a home visit to Zhang Wei’s house in Chang Tiang village.
It takes Zhang Wei about an hour to walk from home to school everyday. During the winter, he has to leave home when it is still dark out. He used to bring the food from home to school. He would wait until school is finished, then take out the cold lunchbox to eat.
Now he is one of the beneficiaries of the “Loving lunch” project. Every day after school, he can eat a warm meal.
When Xu Wang and the teachers got to his home, they talked with his grandmother for a while. They provided her with the details of the “Loving Lunch” project. At the same time, they hoped that she makes sure to pay attention to the kids’ overall well being. The whole time, the grandmother repeated "Thank you, thank you".
