Twenty-five-year-old Tserangtso is one of the 257 villagers who participated in one of our village stops. She shared with us her experience before and after the My Health, My Family, Our Safety awareness program experience.
“Women in remote areas like us have been in poor living conditions since childhood. We tend to ignore minor illnesses and pains, hoping that our bodies’ immune systems would take care of it and the illness would eventually disappear. However, certain illnesses such as gynecological diseases become serious over time if not attended to. Everyone knows this but most of the time, we would rather deceive ourselves and disregard the pain rather than face the reality that we need help. I have never been to the hospital for a routine check-up, even though I feel that my health is no longer in good condition.”
“This is why I feel very fortunate to have participated in your program. I’m thankful to have met such caring people like you who let me and my co-villagers receive health education and health packages for free. I saw the smiles on the faces of my neighbors when they received the medicines and health products you donated. We are all grateful from the bottom of our hearts. This will help not only me but also my children. I will share with everyone I meet about my new found health knoweldge.”
“I would like to thank you for choosing to help our village. Every bit of help you gave shows your deep love for rural women like me!”
Thank you to Shufang for sponsoring this village program.
My world is not limited to a small mountain village. I want to reach a distance I have never reached. I want to go to the top of the mountain to overlook the world and blow the night wind on the top of the mountain.
