The villagers of Hontong, Shanxi, China just lost their homes and most of their possessions to flooding from a collapsed dam over Chinese New Year this year. A friend of mine performed fieldwork for her PhD here last summer and got to know the people well. In a little over a month, she will go back on April 7th to do more fieldwork, film a documentary regarding their struggles, and assist with reconstruction. It is my hope that I, along with your help, could send much needed money and/or supplies along with my friend to provide at least a little help for the villagers in rebuilding their lives.

That being said, I ask that you take a look around at all of the blessings that we are all capable of taking for granted. Then please consider the fact that these villagers had very little before the flood, and now have next to nothing.

Please find it in your heart to make a donation to assist with the rebuilding of their homes and lives. If there was ever a time to pay it forward, it is now. If you have any questions about this cause, please message me via Facebook or at thereskhart@yahoo.com and I would be more than happy to answer your questions or link you with my friend who can provide even more information.

Thank you in advance for your help!
