Project Eden- New Van at Eden

The Parents and children were thrilled at the arrival of their new, 2yr old van two months ago. Thanks to the very generous donations from two of our sponsors, we were able to buy a very good quality second-hand van.

Its had plenty of use already; transporting household goods, bringing children for medical check ups and one of the parents for dental treatment. With the arrival of four more girls from our Captivating project at Qinghai, we now have 17 children at Eden and this van is extremely welcome so that they do not need to depend on public transport for important tasks or an urgent need to get somewhere, like a medical emergency.

We can’t thank you enough for your donations and support in helping to improve the lives and future prospects of the children.

CHINA | MY FIRST JOB PROGRAM

For My Parents

My name is Lhamotso and I am 22 years old. I have had very little education and so I have never had a job where I can earn a good income. My family rely on our livestock to survive but last winter was really heavy snow and five of our cattle were trapped. We couldn’t do anything about it. This devastated my family.

Despite Uncertainties

Xiangdong's family is particularly poor in the village. He and his younger brother were raised by their loving grandparents. However, the future was uncertain for both of them.
