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.
It’s been a long time since we contacted Galan. We are curious about her health. I called Galan today and she told me she was much better this year. She had a cold and recovered with some medicines from the county hospital. There’s donated 500RMB left. Her parents were not fine and needed to take medicines. Her child is a year and half who could ran and speak simple words. I asked if the child had been registered. She said no and she and her husband would do this in a few days.
The income from green beans is 1100RMb and the wheat is not enough, but the family could manage it with corns. Galan raised 3 pigs. She sold one of them with 800RMB. The family would slaughter one for Chinese Lunar New Year. The female sheep donated by LRS gave birth to a little sheep. The child is growing up and started to eat noodle and drink less sheep milk. The income of the family in a year is less than 2000RMB. She thanked those who have been caring about her, especially Yanyan and other loving people. We hope all the family members good health and more income.
