Mo Chunfeng Needs a Scholarship

There are six members in my family- grandma, father, mother, sister, brother, and me. My Mother and Father became persons with disabilities in a traffic accident. My mother's leg was lost, and my Father's leg was broken in two in that accident. After my father's leg was joined, my father had much difficulty working. The bad driver ran away without paying any medical fees. My mother was badly injured, and the medical fee was very high- more than 100,000 yuan ($14,684 US). We borrowed money from our friends and relatives. The money was not enough, so we tried to get a loan from a bank.
So now our family owes a lot of debt. Now my mother has nothing to do but walk with a walking stick and can't look after the family at all. My grandmother was bitten by a snake in in her foot when she was young. Without any money she couldn't go to see the doctor, so she became disabled because of that.
My younger brother will graduate from junior middle school and go to senior middle school very soon. I will go to college, so we will need a lot of money to pay for our schooling. Now the only laborer in our family is my elder sister. There is some trouble to pay for the fee of our daily life, so how can we afford the schooling of my brother and me? What is more, we still have to pay back our debt.
I'm a student who longs for knowledge. I'm looking forward to going to college to learn more knowledge, so I long for the scholarship. I hope you can help me realize my dream of going to college.

Blessing Hands is a 503 (c)(3) US charity that helps students in Yangshuo and Qinzhou, China go to school. We have had 23 students apply for college scholarships this year and eight of them have gotten sponsors through our newsletter. One more, Mo Zongli, received a scholarship from a different US Charity that has sent him to college.
You can review all the scholarship newsletters on our blog at this link. Chunfeng is the last student to be featured unless some that have not gotten college letters yet are accepted into college late. Thank you for your patience with the many newsletters we have sent out recently. We will go back to only a few newsletters a month now.
I am a mother and housewife that loves China and children. The two interests
have come together in serving the children of China who need help with
educational needs. I started as a teacher in an English summer camp and got to
know the teachers first. When I toured their schools and met their precious
students, I could see many needs and decided to try to help. I first started a
fund to assist children with tuition, but it has expanded into a 501(c)(3)public
charity granting money for textbooks and school supplies for primary school and
lower middle school students and tuition for older students.
