Gao Long Elementary School was built in 80s. There are 40 students and teachers. Students are from the 8 villages around 4 kilometers from the school. Most of the students are left-behind children. They can’t have a proper meal because either their family are poor or there is no transportation for them to go home and eat lunch. Now, with the donation and help of some companies and volunteers, the students can have a at least worth 4.00 rmb lunch in their school days. The students now can have a nutritious meal.
The leader of charitable business: Miss Mengdie He:
In July, we have donate 2 years of free lunch to Gao Long Elementary School. The reason why we visit the students this time is to send them some stationary and necessities.
