Special scholarship to help Zhang Hongxia

Zhang Hongxia, a current middle school student, had a successful congenital heart disease surgery on September 3rd, 2010 with the help from Angel Heart International. All the cost for the surgery was funded by Angel Heart as Hongxia’s family is under poor economic conditions. Hongxia’ physical condition was back to normal after the surgery and she wanted to go back to school. However, her family’s economic difficulties jeopardized her hope. Hongxia’s mother is suffering from eye disease and the treatment had already cost the family almost 7,000 dollars. Hongxia’s father could not go out to work because he has to take care of Hongxia’ mother at home. The only income of the family is from less than an acre of land and they have to pay the debt, so Hongxia and her siblings are facing the crisis of dropout of school. Hongxia’s brother is now in high school and he has a really good academic performance. In order to save money for her mother’s treatment, he only eats one meal per day. Hongxia also has a younger sister in middle school. To save the 5 dollar ticket from Hui Ning to Dingxi, Hongxia did not go to the AHI annual reunion even though she really wanted to go. 

Around Chinese New Year of 2015, AHI started a special campaign to help Hongxia and her sibling to continue school. More than 40 children donated their gifts received during the holidays to this special scholarship.  Final donation list can be found at the end of this page.  The scholarship was given to Hongxia on 3/21/2015 for school year of 2014-2015 and on 8/8/2015 for school year of 2015-2016.

We believe the best way to say "Thank You" to our supporters is to publish Hongxia's letter to AHI here:

“Although we are 10,000 miles apart, although I know there is no word can express our gratitude , let this letter be the most sincere wishes and thanks from the deep valley in Huining's mountain range!"
