On May 10，a wide range of hail, rainstorm and debris flow occurred in Minxian, Gansu Province. The natural disaster raided 12 towns of Minxian. Little Red Scarf was concerned for those congenital heart disease children who had been assisted, but we couldn’t get in contact with them and their parents until today because there was something wrong with internet signal. Since 2010, we have subsidized 11 congenital heart disease children. Unfortunately so far there have been 3 children who we couldn’t get in touch with because our phone calls would not go through.
Those children are 16-Xiaoxiao, 87 – Ping’er, LY-37 Xiaozha, LY-83 Yaru, LY-95 Zhuanyun, LY-99 Jiakang, LY-118 Dongli, LY-131 Alian, 264 – Yanyan, LY-181Xiao Pei, and 304 Junjun. So far we haven’t been able to get in touch with Xiaoxiao, Ping’er, Dongli and Junjun. We really hope they and their families are doing well.
Here is the information about them after the disaster.
LY-37 Xiaozha: The heavy rainstorm damaged their old houses and they had to move to their relatives’ house and live there. Fortunately none of their family was hurt. In addition, their farmlands were seriously damaged and their harvest would suffer. Still, thanks for caring about them.
LY-83 Yaru: There was nothing serious with their houses and farmlands. They appreciated Little Red Scarf. They were very happy.
LY-95 Zhuanyun: The rain water had flooded their home and now it was under restoration. Their crops would come to naught because the disaster completely damaged their farmlands. It was luck that no one was hurt in the disaster. Her parents were busy restoring their home. Thanks for caring. There was no damage in school.
LY-99 Jiakang : Their farmlands were flooded and the hail like eggs damaged their houses and walls. His father was exciting about the greeting from Little Red Scarf. They felt satisfactory that no one was hurt in the disaster.
LY-131 Alian: Her parents returned from Mongolia and the whole family is alright. But their farmlands were ruined and they wouldn’t have any harvest. Their parents would accompany their family for some time and then they would go out for work. Children got well. They hoped Little Red Scarf could help more children.
264 – Yanyan: Everything was alright except their crops. Thanks to Little Red Scarf for the greeting.
LY-181Xiao Pe: Since their village is remote, the disaster had little effect on their village. Sometimes it seems that it is fortunate to live far away.
