A photo of Zhu-BaofengA photo of Zhu-BaofengBaofeng Zhu was born in 1996 and will be in middle school in Fall 2009. Her mother is handicapped as you can see. Without the stick, she can not walk. Her father was found to have serious stomach problem in summer 2008. The family is very poor. In addition, she lives in `wrong’ side of a local river, which does not have a stable bridge. So in small rain, she has to walk through the river to get to other side. In heavy rain, she has to to stay home. Next Fall, she will stay in middle school for the week, which might be better for her study. She works hard at home to help her parents and work hard in school to catch up her study. She has been sponsored by Yi Yang & Chong Chen since 2007.

We are very happy to report that five high school students we supported were accepted to top to very good universities. They are (from right to left) Yuantao Liu(Anhui Univ., sponsored by Hua Liu and Feng Li), Zhao Wang (Southeast U. at Nanjing, sponsored by Ms Hu), Xiang Gao (), Zeting Cheng (sponsored by James Chiu, Hangzhou Normal Univ.), and Shuang Yang( not in the photo, Anhui Univ.). The one at the left (with 4000 yuans) is Limin Yan, now in 3yr of her college life. Profs. Li and Liao have sponsored her since her high school years and will continue to support her until her graduation. The 4000 yuans were their donation. They all appreciate your generous support very much. Your support is also an inspiration to them, they told me.

Shuang Yang's parents are both handicapped, and her mother is often sick and the family are in debt. She lives in a very rural area and is very conscious of her family's situation. Only when she was admitted to Ningguo High School, her family had no way to pay for it, she asked for help. We supported her through her high school years. It is also amazing to see her get accepted to a top univeristy while she was admitted to Ningguo High School barely (bottom of the class according the testing score). Her father told us that the support was a big inspiration to her.

Xiang Guo lost his parents and lives with his aging grandparents (in a very rural area). He is the only one not in Ningguo High School (the best in Ningguo) among the five. The school waived his tuition. We supported him since his middle school years.

Zhao Wang lost her mother at very early age, and lives with her aging grandparents of 70's and his farmer father(also in a very rural area). Ms Hu has sponsored her through her high school years.

Yuantao lost his mother too and his father is phyically weak. He also lives in a very rural area (same area as Zhao Wang, incidently). Hua Liu and Feng Li have sponsored him since his middle school years.

Zeting's father was seriously sick (is better now,still not able to do heavy work).  All depend on her mother. Her brother is in middle school.  Her grandma is old and sometimes sick. Her uncle is handicapped. She lives close to the city. A university girl Feifei Gong sponsored her in her middle school years and James Chiu sponsored her through her high school years.
