Visit to Liangshan of Sichuan
The First Daylight of Liangshan
Field visit to Liangshan of Sichuan
Your decision can regain children’s chance for health
In September 2010, UNICEF Ambassadors Karen Mok and Daniel Chan, special guest Astrid Chan visited the marginalized minority. They visited children and families in the remote mountainous Meigu County in Liangshan Prefecture of Sichuan, China. Only on this trip did we see just what these statistics really mean – broken and shattered families, devastated by the loss of mothers, babies born with disabilities, and the ever-present threat of HIV/AIDS, often due to preventable causes. Each word the local women and elders uttered recalling their stories felt like another stone falling onto our chests.
