A representative of the Chinese charity the Amity Foundation (left) speaks with the orphan Fan Jian Bo, 11, and his aunt Guo Yu Hua about their situation outside of their home in Fanzhuang Village, Gangyun County, Jiangsu, China.  Fan Jian Bo, 11, was orphaned in 1998, and now lives with his aunt and uncle in Fanzhuang Village, Jiangsu Province, China.  The boy's father died of cancer in 1998, and soon after his mother committed suicide by drinking pesticide.  The boy's uncle has a cerebral embolism and the meager income the family earns from growing cabbages and melons cannot support Fan Jian Bo continuing school.  ..At the time of the picture, China's Amity Foundation charity, was investigating the family's situation in preparation to raise money to financially support these children and other orphans in similar situations.  With Amity's support, each orphan, aged 6-12, would receive approximately 1,400 RMB annually (about 200 USD) to pay for the cost of living. Amity works to keep children out of the institutional orphanages in China, preferring to provide monetary assistance that can help maintain a family environment for the orphans it helps.
