LRS Summer Camp 2016 has begun!
Children Check-In and Arrive
Sleepy Bus Ride
At 3:30 when the registration for camp was over, we all got on the bus from Lanzhou to Yuzhong, and headed to our camp location. This was the hottest time of day, and soon many of the kids had fallen asleep. These sleeping children were beautiful and charmingly naive. We couldn’t help but laugh.
Zheng Family Courtyard
At 5:30 pm, we arrived at our destination—the Zheng family courtyard at the foot of Xinglong Mountain.
Welcome and Settling In
After we finished observing the courtyard and its many embellishments, we all went to the summer camp’s welcome ceremony. Teacher Yun talked to the children about the summer camp rules and important information.
Then we had some free time. After the children had settled in with their luggage, they soon began to play around in the yard.
Gratitude from Gansu
Most of these children have been financially helped by Little Red Scarf, and are now grown up. Many years have passed, and seeing them now still leaves me moved. Seeing them happy and fulfilled, able to overcome their physical defects, made me even more thankful for the founder of this foundation, as he is the one who gave these children their present happiness.
