According to their motto - “Love, truth, and service to community” - Xingyang Volunteer Federation works to enhance people’s sense of social responsibility through providing them various volunteer opportunities.The office is in Xingyang, Henan province.
Wang Mengli and Wang Qiufen, both supported by the Xingyang Volunteer Federation, are suffering from serious illnesses. Thankfully, they are now in stable condition. According to our plan, we will make at least one phone call to them per month and pay them a visit.
On April 18, we sent 2500 yuan to each of them at the Xingyang People’s Hospital for the treatment. The money came from TFish Fund. Wang Mengli needed dialysis so her mother took the money for her. Wang Qiufen took the money herself.
On May 16, we called Wang Mengli. She had been admitted to the hospital because she has difficulty breathing, and her brother took care of her. Now she has rented a small room near the hospital with only a bed and a table in it. Her husband even found a job near Xing Yang in order to take care of her, but he comes back home very late every day.
We called Wang Qiufen and visited her son in the Liuhe Primary School. Wang Qiufen suffered from heart pain due to her medicine, but she has to take these cardiovascular drugs. The teacher said her son, Zhang Pan, works hard and does well in school. When we saw Zhang Pan, we found there were holes in his pants. We asked Wang Qiufen to come to our warehouse and take some clothes. After a few days, she came and took 7 articles of clothing.
On June 23, we called Wang Qiufen and learned that she is in stable condition and taking medicine.
