Little Red Scarf is in Lanzhou, Gansu, and Yunnan provinces. We provide financial support and encouragement to children suffering from congenital heart disease. In addition, we provide families with post-operative care and help the children sustain a healthy lifestyle.
September 2016: School and Work
After Shixiang passed away in May, Cui Mei is now the only surviving child in her family. Her 2 brothers have died from congenital heart disease, and Cui Mei herself has it as well. She is still currently attending school.
Cui Mei’s father has gone to Xinjiang to pick cotton for work. The family still has a sense of responsibility. Because the family’s land isn’t suitable for planting corn, they have rented it out to other people. Therefore, the family has no income and the father had to go to Xinjiang to work. He wants to earn some money to pay back some of their debt and save some money for Cui Mei’s surgery in Lanzhou.
