On the day before Mother’s Day in 2013, Anzheng Charity Foundation’s “Sunshine in May•Anzheng Charity Wealth Project” entered Haining City to promote the “Helping Impoverished Mothers with Their Business Project” in Haining City. A few months later, we revisited the mothers who have received assistance from Anzheng Charity Foundation with our care and great expectation in September, hoping to see that our love have helped them make great achievements.
We randomly visited a few mothers who have received our help and we were happy to see that they have gradually got rid of poverty, started their businesses, lived a better life, and created wealth for the family. They are confident about their own futures and the future of the whole family.
Wei Xiaojuan has received assistance from Anzheng Charity Foundation for two years at 3800 Yuan/year (mainly the assistance is provided in forms of chemical fertilizer, pesticides, and films, and other agricultural materials). This year, her 3.6-mu vineyards harvested 6,500kg and helped her to completely step out of poverty. She has planned to increase 1.3-mu vineyard, which is expected to produce an income of extra 50,000 Yuan. Before receiving assistance, her father-in-law was disabled, mother-in-law had heart disease, her husband was suffering from diabetes, and her two young children were still in school. The yearly income for the family of six amounted to 5300 Yuan only.
Zhuang Yueying has received assistance from Anzheng Charity Foundation for two years at 4000 Yuan/year (mainly the assistance is provided in forms of chemical fertilizer, pesticides, and films, and other agricultural materials). Last year she grew 2.4-mu of grapes and achieved a gross income of 18,000 Yuan. This year she borrowed loans and extended vineyard to 6.4mu, which was expected to achieve an income of 100,000 Yuan. Before all these, Zhuang Yueying has been suffering from mental disorder for seven years and had to be on medication for a long time, while her husband was suffering from multiple myeloma, and both her mother-in-law and father-in-law were frail and vulnerable. The entire family had to spend nearly 3000 for the medication of the all the family each month. After receiving assistance, they worked up on their business and were expected to thoroughly overcome poverty within two years.
After two years’ business and plantation, these mothers lived a hard life, but were bringing their families to a better future. They no longer needed to worry about the daily supplies in life or run here and there for borrowing money for the medication. When we see that they keep moving forward, with the help from Anzheng Charity Foundation, we feel happy for them.
Anzheng Charity Foundation’s “Sunshine in May•Anzheng Charity Wealth Project” changed the previous charitable money donations into business support, which brought more love and hope for those impoverished mothers. By changing “blood transfusion” style into “hemopoiesis” style, we taught them “fishing methods” instead of “offering them fish”. We believe all those business mothers will bring their family to a broader future and create more wealth for the whole family.
