We thought the world had forgotten about us. Thank you for loving us!

Imagine being 10 years old, orphaned, with no where to go and no one to love you. Your clothes are old and filled with holes and do not protect against the icy winter air but you don’t have money to buy new ones. Now imagine being well in years and sick, with no one to take care of you. You have to fend for yourself, collect fire wood, cook your own food, try to find enough money to buy food and update your clothes when they have fallen apart from wear. This is life for 17 orphans and 16 old people in Josai Village, China.

Josai Orphans (6)Thanks to the generous aid of the Guasso family, these very special people are smiling and their hearts are filled with happiness. 33 sets of new shirts and robes were given out to this very close community. Darcuo [photo on right] is a 79 year old woman living alone after her only child died when she was 6 years old. Darcuo says “I don’t have enough food and I do not have any money to buy clothes. Thank you so much for thinking of us“. The old people told Dejyid [project coordinator] that they feel loved and cared for.

Thank you to the Guasso family for making all this possible. These are the faces of people who thought they were forgotten but because of you, now feel loved and part of a wider family.
