Moving Forward to Reach the Unreachable Places !
"Fortunately, supplies came in!" Xiaohui, a single mother who lives in the remote area tightly grips the hands of The Mustard Seed Mission Food Bank’s worker, expressing gratitude for this timely assistance.
In remote indigenous tribes, residents and elderly people rely mostly on local grocery stores or mobile shop vans for their daily necessities. Unfortunately, if there is a shortage or inadequate delivery of goods, they have to struggle with limited resources. Going down the mountain to purchase items is an additional financial burden for them. Even if they have the means to go to the city to buy things, a single trip takes at least two to three hours.
Xiaohui, from a disadvantaged family in the indigenous tribe, raised her two young children independently, in order to take care of her children wholeheartedly, she works hard and takes on odd jobs to make a living. Recently, during a consecutive holiday period, the logistics services of many businesses were temporarily suspended. She ran all over the surrounding stores at home and could not buy diapers, milk powder, and other children's necessities...
She panicked and urgently sought assistance from a local church that collaborates with the Mustard Seed Mission. Immediately, the Food Bank Van delivered the supplies to the indigenous tribe and visited her home to assess the needs of her children, so that care and support are not diminished by distance.
