Impoverished Siblings Struggle To Afford University

Impoverished Siblings Struggle To Afford University
In Shanxi a pair of poor siblings’ parents and grandmother have all contracted a serious illness. The siblings were recently accepted into college, but at first the brother gave up in order to work at home and make money so his sister could go to school. Their parents in the end borrowed money from everywhere, and a charity gave money until they could both continue at school. The sister said that she would walk 30 minutes to one of her many part time jobs just to save 1 RMB. Netizens one after another encouraged them on, one person even asked: “can everybody just give them 50 or 100 RMB?”

    2 things. One, how is this news? Lots of poor people can get into university and don’t go. Second, There’s gonna be so much pressure on that poor kid to succeed.

      3rd The comment is right if everyone sends a few rmb each there is tons of money in China. We just need a charity that isn’t corrupt to manage it.
