Longwan Caring Home is located in Dahua County, which was listed as one of the poorest counties in Guangxi Province. Longwan Caring Home is a big family consisting of orphans, single parents, and abandoned children. The normal expense of the Home is sustained by plantation, breeding, and small business.
Guan Yuan is 11 years old and in Grade 5. It’s his 3rd year in Longwan. He is a happy, honest and responsible little man in our Home. He is growing up day by day.
His previous home was a cottage with a thatched roof. His family consists of orphans from 2 families. This is because his father died when he was still young and his mother married again and left the home. Guan Yuan and his younger brother now live and study at Longwan, which has become their new home.
Guan Yuan likes to play basketball and he is definitely the main force on the basketball team at the Home. He also likes taking photographs and is very good at it. He helps to fix lights, pipes, tables and chairs and is becoming a skilled worker. He also helps cook in the kitchen for about 70-80 people, along with many of the other children. Guan Yuan is a warm-hearted child and helps to do a lot of chores such as cleaning, feeding pigs, taking care of younger children, etc. He is a good student.
Guan Yuan hopes to become a photographer or basketball star. We hope he studies hard and changes his fate with hard work.
