Yunmeng County Volunteers Federation of Hube Province was set up on September 10, 2011, which aims to work with poverty alleviation, education support and community building. It has 150 members.
Wang, is a 64-year-old man worried about his sugarcane harvest. He has to take care of his son who has been in the hospital. At this difficult time, Yunmeng Volunteers Federation motivated loving people to help. We asked people to spend their Saturday helping Wang harvest his sugarcanes.
Uncle Wang lives in Dafeng village. There are 4 people in the family: his wife, a son and a daughter. Uncle Wang’s son is 38 and suffers from serious schizophrenia. According to Wang, his son got the illness at 13. He had taken his son to seek treatment, but nothing could cure him. His illness could not be treated in any way because they did not have the funds.
The sugarcanes have to be harvested these days. Otherwise, the frost will destroy them. When people heard the situation, they offered their ideas. The volunteers and loving people decided to harvest sugarcane for Uncle Wang on Saturday. They also promised to buy some sugarcane from Wang later on.
