Supporting Poor, Orphan Children and Elderly in China
An Orphan girl named Adila who lived with her grandmother. Adila’s parents had passed away when she was five years old. Now aged eight, she lived with her elderly grandmother in a small rented room which they called home. Like, Ibrahim, this family was from another city called Kashghar (located just north of Pakistan and linked by Karakorum highway from Gilgit). Although grandmother has lived in Urumqi for more than twenty five years, she did not receive any government help. Adila did not go to school because her grandmother could afford to pay £7 per month fees to the school. There was no coal to cook food or heat the room and most of the time they survived by eating dry Nan bread with water. In addition, grandmother was very ill.
Venue: Hilton London Paddington Hotel, 146 Praed Street, London W2 E11
