_ [Simple Scholarships is a program that seeks to give out scholarships to kids rural China. Travel Expense Contributions is a branch under the NGO that delivers the aid in person. These volunteers personally visit the students to identify need and then deliver these donations to make sure that 100% has reached the correct recipients. The following is an update on their most recent trip. For more information, please visit here.]
The volunteers from the Xiamen Simple Scholarships station met up at the KFC by Xiamen Hospital of T.C.M. for their trip. At the same time, volunteers from Fuzhou and Zhangping dispatched in the rain to convene with local volunteers in Wuping. At 14:00 on Jan. 15, they finished their visit and returned via Xiamen.
This visit is comprised of four cars of volunteers from three cities. Volunteers from Fuzhou traveled 1200 kilometers; those from Xiamen traveled 700 kilometers. They are: Liu Linzhen, Hellorita, Fangfang, Meizi, Feng, Zhen Bing, Huang Mengya, Qing Qibing, Lu Renjiang, Xuelan, Wuping, (the following are local) Wang Haitang, Xiu Guanlong, Lan Baituteng, and Liu Jiao.
They split up into 6 groups and visited 20 kids. They gave scholarships to 16 kids, totaling 9800 rmb. This trip also brought the kids 20 scarves, candies, oranges, books, and other New Year’s presents.
1. One of the children who was on the list, Liu Cong, was at his aunt’s house. We did not have the aunt’s phone number. So Fangfang and Meizi will make sure to revisit when the child returns.
