Little Red Scarf is in Lanzhou, Gansu province and provides financial support and encouragement to children suffering from congenital heart disease. In addition, they provide families with post-operative care and help the children sustain a healthy lifestyle.
When Little Red Scarf knew Chunyao, she was 6 months. Her grandfather was holding her in his arms. When we visited Chunyao 1.5 years later, we saw a girl running in the yard.
Chunyao became cheerful after the operation. Her personality is as lively as a boy. She always smiles and looks pleasant. She also mimicked her grandmother to treat us with apples.
Chunyao drank fresh milk every day after the operation. One of their relatives kept a milk goat for her. The cow gave birth to a little lamb 2 months ago. When we took pictures for the goat, she acted as a shepherd to take care of the goat.The first marriage of her father left the family in heavy debt. Her father had to go out of the village for work 1 week later. Her grandparents had to take care of the family. The family is optimistic, because the child’s health is the most important thing for them.
On leaving, we take a family photo for them. We wish them all the best.
