"I saw father and mother suffer such hardship and wither away over time, while mother kept saying, ‘dad and I can bear more hardship and exhaustion, but … we still can’t pay your school fees.’ At this moment, when I thought I would have to drop out of school, the village received the news of your gift, Guanlan Mama. You can’t imagine how happy I was to hear that you would support our and my schooling. We won’t let you down.” - Excerpt from Guanlan Sister's letter
