Many of the homes of our girls were nestled in deep valleys, with no running water or electricity until very recently.
Life here is hard!
But the views are just stunning!!!!
We met a sprightly eighty four year old Grandpa, walking the long journey thro the mountains to town in Lalie. Turns out his grand-daughter, now a paediatricain in Yizhou, was one of our first Guangxi Girls :-)
We arrived at the home of a wonderful old gentleman in Lalie,
who first contacted Matthew years ago
to ask if he could help the girls in the valleys
He opens his home each time our Team visits and helps with looking after the girls - it was an amazing place to meet!
We just loved the history in his home......
and it was great for Cammy to share with the girls about all of their hopes for the future!
Wonderful hospitality in rural, and poor Guangxi!
And then Lucy had the girls get down to the hard work of filling in their questionnaires to send to their sponsors
Watched by their very appreciative mamas, who truly appreciate this chance for their girls!
And truly a privilege to have been there!
Du An High School
As the girls started to arrive for our meeting, we kinda took over an Ice-cream parlour at the School gate - the owners were happy to share their premises with us? Can't see that happening at home?
Cammy in Action!!!!
We shared dinner with the girls and continued the chat.....before all too soon, we had to say goodbye.....
Thank you to all our Du An sponsors who have so faithfully helped our girls over the years.
We hope this offers a wee insight into life there.
