A Special Lunch in China
Mung Yue-Yun has not seen her child in almost 4 years. It’s been 3 years for Li Ming-Hong and 8 years for Wang Yan.
In China, 60 million children are left behind in rural villages, while their parents go to the big cities to find work. While the parents send money home, it is often too costly to return themselves.
Amway recently arranged for some parents to return home to see their children, and captured their experiences in this short film. It has been viewed more than a million times across China, and we are now sharing it with the rest of the world.
Amway and its partners in China support children of migrant families in rural areas by ensuring that schools are equipped to provide nutritious meals. We also work in urban areas, making sure under-resourced schools have the tools and volunteer support they need.
Change is happening in China. In light of the big economic shifts, it is important to notice the impact on individual lives, and to do what we can to help.
Thank you to Frances Yu, Paula Peng and Rowley Luo for sharing these touching stories with us.
