New desks and chairs for students at Liangmen

Dear Donors,

Hope you are doing well and staying safe.  This is an exceptional and challenging time for us all.  We have adapted to different ways of working with schools and continued to provide help for those in need.

This past April, we received a request from a faculty member at Liangmen Elementary School.  Located in Puyang, Henan, Liangmen has been participating in our Library Program for over two years. The new request however was about desks and chairs instead of books. All desks and chairs for the 306 students at Liangmen were from a bulk order in 2007 and had been in need of repair for a long time.  We connected with the faculty through video chat.  We saw that most desks had their finishes seriously damaged and the chairs were so worn-out that the students had to bring chairs from their homes to sit in class.

The situation required our immediate action.  By the beginning of May, 310 sets of new desks and chairs arrived at Liangmen and were set up just in time before the students came back from break.  Cost of the renovation was about $4100, which all came from your support.  Your generosity helped create a cleaner and safer learning environment for the children.  We cannot thank you enough.

It is incredible to have you by our side in the midst of this global crisis.  Wishing you and your loved ones good health and happiness always.

 

Sincerely,

Overseas China Education Foundation
