3 of the 7 girl's stories we received this week.
I was born on Aug. of 1997, studying on Grade Four in Yizhou NO.4 Primary School.
There are three people in my family,my mother,stepfather and I. My mother was sold to another place when she was young. After I was born, my mother ran back to Yizhou. And then she married with my step father. They rent a simple house in Qingyuan town,do some labor work and reclaim recoverable garbage to live on. But when I was six years old, my mother had a traffic accident,her leg was cut and had something wrong with her mind. The whole family depends on my father but he suffers in cerebral hemorrhage, he cannot take care of himself. Now we cannot pay our house rent, some kind person paid for us. If not we will be homeless. My clothes come from neighbor sisters’ old clothes. Now my parents cannot work, my life is very difficult so I hope some one can help me.
Note: this child was recommended by Yizhou Women’s Federation they hope we can help her and her family. They said she is so late to study because of their poor life.

My father died after I was born eight days, and then my mother remarried. I only have my old grandparents, aunt & uncle who in a poor health. My aunt suffers in a high blood pressure, and need to take medicine. My uncle just takes some simple work at home. My grandparents are too old to work. My aunt supports the whole family. And now I am a middle school student and spend much money in my food expenses. Although I live in orphanage, it still has difficult for me, because our orphanage has an economic hardship, we have more than twenty students in middle school, it will spend fifty yuan for food expenses one week for each person. It is a lot of payment for orphanage. In next term, we will have more than forty persons study at middle school. It will make our orphanage into the trouble.
We visit her orphanage in July 16 of 2011, Tan said, her mother remarried and had a daughter, so her mother cannot give her little food expenses. Her uncle had two children, so they also in a poor life, and cannot help her.
Her teachers who is in orphanage said that, because of the orphanage has trouble in economic, so they had asked for help from Pinggou local government, but had no messages, so the orphanage cannot pay for students others fee at school except their food expenses. So they hope we can help Tan.

I live in Tongren village, I am twelve years old. My mother died many years ago, because of our poor life, my father went out to work and save each penny for us, when he was sick, he didn’t go to see doctor. Last year, he was ill and then sent to hospital, but cannot cure him, and then he died. My grandmother is seventy years old and in poor health lives with us.
