Yinfeng Loving Service Center assists vulnerable groups and encourages people to participate in community service work and give back to their society.
Early in March and with a foggy weather, some staff and a few volunteers visited a village located on a small mountain in Lantian county of Shanxi province. They also brought gifts donated by loving people.
We visited a village preschool. The conditions were very poor. They just had few toys and books besides desks and chairs. The children in the kindergarten did not have much fun apart from playing with each other or listening stories from their teachers.
By walking into the mountain, we arrived at our goal village. The village head gave us warm greetings and invited us to his house. According to his introduction, there are 68 households making their livings from the fields. The economy of the whole village is poor and dozens of young men in the village could not afford to be married. We told the village head that we would contact some enterprises and see if the young men could go out to work so that to ease the burden of their families.
We left the village after giving them some gifts. We could not visit each household, but we would come again.
