People with leprosy are sent to isolated villages where they are abandoned and forgotten by society. The Shalom Leprosy Compassion Ministry has a special place in its heart for these people and organizes groups of volunteers to travel to villages plagued with leprosy in order to provide medical, living, and psychological assistance. The Shalom Leprosy Compassion Ministry is located in Kunming, Yunnan.
Dear TFish Foundation,
I live with my grandfather in Yangquangou village. 2 years ago, my mother left us and I did not know why. My father is in poor health, so my grandfather had to take care of me. There are grandfather, father, younger sister and me in the family. My younger sister has been living with us since 2013. She is 7 and she went to school with me this year.
I am 11 and in Grade 4. I stay at school from Monday to Friday and go back to see my grandfather on weekends. I want to thank granny Liang Ping and her friends very much. They care about me and they told me some stories about the village. They also brought me some clothes, toys and books. They encouraged me to study hard and read more books.
I am grateful that TFish gives me 100 yuan each month. Granny Liang Ping brought the money to my grandfather in person. I also want to thank Mr. and Mrs. Zhao as well as other people. I will study hard and deliver an excellent school performance. I welcome you to visit Yangquangou as our guest.
Thank TFish and Mr. and Mrs. Zhao again!
