Meet Li

Li was born with a congenital cleft lip and abandoned within a week of her birth in 1987 in Hubei Province. However, Li was a smart and strong young girl whose lip was repaired when she was a small child and grew up in the Jingzhou SWI. The orphanage staff members tell LWB that Li always helped with the younger brothers and sisters at the orphanage. She has always been a very good girl. Moreover, Li excelled in her studies in elementary, middle and high school.

After taking college entrance exams, Li achieved a tremendous honor. Her marks were high enough to earn her admission to Wuhan Science and Technology University of Hubei Province. Li is the first and only young person from her orphanage to achieve such an honor. Li says: “The big family (orphanage) that raised me. It is the kind-hearted people of the society who sponsored me to go to the university to have a further study.I will study hard and be a useful person to society and help those who need help.”

In September 2007, Li enrolled as a student majoring in logistics at the university. A television advertisement praising Li for her academic achievement and financial need generated enough donations within to fund her schooling for the 2007-2008 academic year. However, Li has no funds to pay for her next year at university. Fees for tuition, books, room and board and a small amount of pocket money for the 2008-2009 academic year will total $2,633. LWB is seeking donors to sponsor Li achieve her dream of an education to help people. No donation is too small to help Li. She appreciates every bit of help in her desire to become educated and a help to her future achievement. To learn more about Li contact linda.mitchell@lwbmail.com.
