Problem: extreme drought
Solution: clean water storage
Funding: various, public
During a summer recent drought, Zhao Fang’s fields dried up. His corn didn’t grow and his family was in physical and financial trouble.
Because of your generous support, we were able to build six water storage units for Zhao Fang’s community. Now his corn grows abundantly and his family is well fed.
About six months after the water storage unit was constructed, a Project Partner team visited Zhao Fang. Zhao ran out to meet our van and insisted we come to his home to taste his corn.
Through a translator, he thanked us for not only saving his crops and feeding his family but also for caring for him. Tears of joy rolled down his cheeks as he repeated, “Xie Xie, Xie xie, Shàngdì bǎoyòu nǐ.”
In English, “Thank you, thank you, God bless you.”
