Rainbow Village Help Center is a TFish Associate Member. It was established for the purpose of serving the needs of impoverished children.
Life for Non Zezhi and Non Zeshao, two brothers, was sad. Their teachers told us that no matter how hard they tried to make them happy, they never smiled. It seemed that smiles had disappeared from their faces. In art class, the teacher asked the children to draw their favorite animals. Most of the students, including Zezhi, drew a panda. When the teacher asked him about the picture, he said he would love to see a panda and his teacher caught a smile on his face.
With an opportunity annually provided through Rainbow Village, we scheduled a happy journey for the children: seeing pandas that they had been dreaming about for such a long time. We hoped that the journey would bring smiles back to the children.
On one foggy winter morning, the children arrived at Chengdu from Yunnan Province. Having heard the story about the brothers, the panda institution offered a special invitation. The children not only got to watch the pandas for free, but they also got to get in close contact with the pandas and even feed them some apples. Zezhi and Zeshao kept staring at the pandas and asked if they bit people. The pandas were cute, especially sitting on a bench with the brothers while eating apples.
The journey, needless to say, brought back smiles on these brothers' faces.
