Our new beneficiaries

In the last report, we described our June field
mission which was the occasion for us to visit a lot of potential new
beneficiaries. Back in Beijing, we had to review the cases of all of the
candidates that we visited. We are now very glad to let you know that vérifier nombre candidates out of vérifier nombre were selected to be
sponsored by Enfants du Ningxia. Here
is a short presentation of some of them:


  • Name : Bai Xiaorong
  • Age :  14
  • Gender : female
  • Grade : 2nd year of middle school

Situation :  This young girl lives in a small cave with
her family. As the family does not have any income, and as they do not want to
have any kind of debt (they know that they will not be able to pay back those
debts), they live with very little money. As a consequence, Bai Xiaorong cannot
affort to eat properly when she is at school, where she only eat a bowl of rice
during lunch time.

  • Name :  Ding Xuemei
  • Age :  22
  • Gender :  female
  • Grade : 3rd year of university. Her major is gynecology

Situation :  Both of Ding Xuemei’s parents cannot work
because they are handicapped. They just receive a little subsidy from the
government for living, but it is not enough to pay their daily life expenses
(basically, food). Ding Xuemei’s brother and sister help the parents by giving
them a little money every month. In order to pay her studies, Ding Xuemei has
several part time jobs.

Her major
is very useful, as a lot of women in Ningxia suffer from health issues linked
to gynecology problems.

  • Name :  Hu Yuhui and Hu Yuhong
  • Age :  13 and 9
  • Gender :  Females
  • Grade :  6th and 4th grade of primary school

Situation :  When the girls’ father died when they were
little, the mother decided to leave and to abandon her two daughters. Since
this time, they live with their grandparents who are very old and also very poor.
As the family is lacking money, we think that when they will be 16 they will be
married, so they will not be a burden anymore. It would be a waste, as the two
girls are very clever.

  • Name :  Yang Xiaoping
  • Age :  17
  • Gender : male 
  • Grade :  First year of university

Situation :  Both of his parents died in his early
childhood. He lives in a very small cave, located in a totally remote area with
his grandparents who are in their 80s. Beside them, he has no family.

  • Name :  Hu Bo
  • Age :  17
  • Gender : Male
  • Grade :  First year of university

Situation :  His parents are both handicapped. As a
consequence, they do not have jobs and they live on a subsidy from the


  • Name :  Jin Zhijun
  • Age :  20
  • Gender : Male
  • Grade :  High School 3

Situation :  The family has a lot of debts due to a
resettlement policy (families are forces to leave their birthplace and must pay
in order to live in a new house, which is poorly constructed most of the time).
In order to earn money, the parents of Jin Zhijun work as migrant workers in
Inner Mongolia, far away from home.


  • Name :  Yang Qing
  • Age :  19
  • Gender :  Female
  • Grade :  1st year of university

Situation :  She had a very good score on the university entrance
exam, and will probably be able to get into one of the best schools in China.
As her parents are migrant workers and do not live at home, she has to take
care of her little brother when she is not at school.


The field mission of June was also the occasion
for the students of the French high school of Hong Kong to donate some school
supplies (such as books, bags, sport equipment or computers) to two needy
primary schools in Ningxia. Hera are some pictures of the donation:
Two primary schools benefited from the donation : Wangwan and Tuochang. The students of the French High School of Hong-Kong gave more than 500 school uniforms and school bags to the kid, buy enough books to fill the libraries of those schools, and also gave some sport equipments as well as a printer.
