Orphaned children live off foraging
  • | dtinews.vn | May 25, 2017 12:33 PM
Two orphans in the mountainous province of Yen Bai are in need of financial help to continue their studies after both of their parents died.

Trieu A Lieu, a 14-year-old boy, helps take care of buffalo herds to earn income and his 11-year-old sister Trieu Thi Lieu goes into the forest to find wild vegetables. After their parents died, they both dropped out of school and moved in with their grandmother. However, their grandmother is too old to do anything so they have to take care of themselves.

"I haven't eaten rice in a long time. The cassava can only be found on the mountain," A Lieu said.

The children were given second-hand clothes after a teacher saw that they only had one set of clothes. But they still want to go to school and decided to keep the newer clothes home until they can return to school again.


There is nothing valuable in the house

Their mother committed suicide in 2013 and their father suddenly died in 2015. Their sister and a brother also died later. There's nothing valuable in the house. Some crates filled with food in the corner belong to their neighbour.

"Our neighbours are repairing their house so they asked to temporarily keep the food here. When they finish, they will probably give us some food too," said the children's grandmother, Trieu Thi Coi.

"I was in 6th grade and my sister was in 4th grade when we dropped out. I want to go to school and eat rice again," A Lieu said.
