祖孙相依度日难,OCEF助学送温暖




郑菲 卢小江

2018年12月,海外中国教育基金会(OCEF)又收到了一份新的申请表,一对亟需帮助的兄妹俩立刻引起了义工们的关注。

九岁和五岁的王家兄妹(为保护孩子们的隐私,特将全名隐去和将影像模糊),现就读于四川省达州市宣汉县土黄镇三胜董坡小学。兄妹俩很小的时候,父母离异,其父外出失足被关押,妈妈至今下落不明,爷爷奶奶成了他们唯一的依靠。2015年秋,爷爷开着农用三轮车出了车祸,倾尽家中所有财物挽回了生命,但从此精神失常,须长期服用药物,让本来艰难的生活雪上加霜,奶奶不得不挥泪挤上东去的列车,没日没夜地劳作,换取微薄的薪酬补贴家用。爷爷和兄妹俩在左邻右舍的照看、亲戚朋友的关照下艰难度日。

几乎长年累月裹着不合身的衣裤,光脚套着宽大的旧鞋的兄妹俩,夜里蜷缩在单薄的被窝里。家中的棉被早已破旧不堪,有着大窟窿。学校老师走访他们时,爷爷说:“够了,够了!我衣服穿得厚,晚上不冷。”兄妹俩吃着咸菜就着稀粥,仍保持着良好的学习成绩,保持着对知识的渴求,哥哥的数学经常拿满分,语文成绩也很好,妹妹书写工整,酷爱画画。他们懂礼貌,懂得心疼爷爷奶奶,希望能学好知识,挣钱为爷爷看病,让家人过上好日子。

兄妹俩的困难情况先是引起了学校老师的关注,经过走访调查,确认了情况,然后于2018年12月9日向海外中国教育基金会(OCEF)提交了特殊项目资助申请,随着申请表附上的兄妹俩境况的照片,张张揪起大家的心,这份申请立刻引起了义工们的关注。很快,他们的申请得到了批准,OCEF及时向他们伸出了援助之手。

2018年12月23日,OCEF的片区联络员和老师们带着兄妹俩到土黄镇上买了暖和的棉被和新衣。学校老师给OCEF发来的反馈里这样说:“给予他们的不仅仅是物质上的帮助,这更多的是让他们感受到了社会没有遗忘我们这些贫困的学生,对于我们这样的学校也是同样的关注。我们知道每一元的善款都来之不易,也许是一杯咖啡换成了清水,也许是看一场电影变成了门前散步,也许是取消了一次旅行……节省下的善款汇聚成热切的爱心,温暖着每一个受资助的孩子的心,把曙光和希望带到了他们身旁,让他们能够顺利的完成自己的学业,能用知识来改变他们的命运。”

孩子们,大家看得到你们的努力,OCEF陪着你们度过这段暂时困难的时光,愿你们拥有一个又一个温暖的冬天。


Warmth Delivered to Struggling Family




By Zheng Fei and Lu Xiaojiang

A new application for OCEF financial aid in December 2018 caught the volunteers’ eyes immediately.

Two siblings from the Wang family, 9 and 5 years old, respectively, are currently enrolled in Sansheng-Dongpo Elementary School in Xanhan County, Dazhou City, Sichuan Province (their first names and images were modified for privacy reasons). They live with their grandparents as their parents have been completely out of their lives since they were very young. Their grandfather was injured in a traffic accident in the fall of 2015. He survived, but the accident destroyed his physical and mental health. Their grandmother had to leave home and earn meager wages in a different town. The family struggled even with helps from relatives, friends and neighbors.

The Wang siblings had to wear ill-fitting clothes all year long and quiver during sleep as there was no warm bedding. Despite all the material scarcity, they maintain excellent grades at school and remain thirsty for knowledge. They have good manners and hope one day they will be able to make a decent living for themselves as well as for their grandparents.

The hardships of the family caught the attention of the siblings’ teachers, who verified the situation and then, on December 9, 2018, applied for OCEF special project grant on the Wangs’ behalf. The pictures attached to the application broke the OCEF volunteers’ hearts. The application was approved  and help came promptly.

Two weeks after the application was filed, the OCEF coordinator and the teachers took the Wang siblings to town to get warm bedding and clothes. The teachers later wrote us: “What they got was not just ‘things,’ but the knowledge that poverty-stricken kids like them are not forgotten by the society. The same also goes for rural schools like ours. We know that every penny has a story behind it, maybe a trip that was cancelled, maybe a movie night changed to a strolling down the street… All these pennies come together as a loving heart, providing warmth to every kid who benefited and giving them hope, so that they’ll be able to complete their education and change their lives.”

Children, everyone sees your effort. OCEF is right by your side through the moment of difficulty and wishes you a warmth-filled winter.
