Other medical projects
3E has helped some families who were not able to get the health care they needed due to the high medical cost. We provided them with assistance toward the cost of the hospital, medicine and travel expenses.
When Rose was around a year old she was abandoned on the doorstep of a building where Auntie Yang found her. Although most would have ignored her not only because she was a girl but because she was anything but a pretty sight, Auntie Yang took her into her heart and home.
Due to an illness, probably meningitis, Rose was found with a protruding pupil in her right eye that had exploded and also a left eye that had lots of scarring and very little sight. Yet Auntie Yang called her Rose and loved her like a tender flower that needed special care. Even though they were very poor they put her in school and gave her all they could.
While visiting Rose’s school, teachers asked if we could do something to help Rose get a better chance in life. At this point most classmates were too scared to play with her since she looked so frightening. Her teacher told us that she herself was too afraid to look at her since she looked so terrible.
3E were able to take Rose to our local hospital and pay for her to get a glass eye as well as give her surgery on her other eye, which immensely improved her sight. Now Rose plays happily with her classmates and friends and is learning to read and write.
Pictured with Rose is Julie, also at the same school, who had poor eyesight due to cataracts. Her mother died four years ago and left their poor family was unable to give her the needed operation to improve her vision. So we took the two little girls in March together to have surgery and have given them a chance for better sight. Today, Julie has much improved sight and can see the blackboard and also has a new friend, Rose.
