Reporter: 13-YEAR-OLD

HUI LOVES SCHOOL, BUT HER

FAMILY CANNOT AFFORD TO SEND

HER ANYMORE.

I CRIED BECAUSE I DIDN'T

WANT TO QUIT, BUT I ALSO

WANTED TO HELP MY FAMILY.

Reporter: HUI'S FAMILY

ARE FARMERS.

THEY STRUGGLE TO GROW ENOUGH

FOOD ON THE MOUNTAINSIDE

WHERE THEY LIVE IN SOUTHWEST

CHINA.

THINGS ARE HARD, BUT THINGS

GET EXTRA CHALLENGING WHEN

IT RAINS.

OUR ROOF IS MADE OF MUD.

IT LEAKS WHEN IT IS RAINS.

WE'RE WORRIED THAT THE

STRONG MOUNTAIN WINDS AND

RAIN WILL MAKE OUR HOUSE

FALL DOWN.

Reporter: A YEAR AFTER

WEY DROPPED OUT OF SCHOOL TO

HELP HER FAMILY, THERE STILL

WASN'T ENOUGH MONEY TO

REPLACE THE ROOF.

MY DAD SAID WHEN WE SAVED

ENOUGH FOR A NEW ROOF, I CAN

GO BACK TO THE SCHOOL.

Reporter: THAT'S WHEN

CBN HONG KONG OFFERED TO

HELP.

WE DIDN'T JUST GIVE WEY'S

FAMILY A NEW ROOF; WITH

BUILT THEM A BRAND NOW

HOUSE.

USED FOR LIVING AND FOR

WORKING.

THE HOME COST ONLY $1,000 TO

BUILD.

IT'S A GOOD HOUSE.

WHEN IT RAINS, IT DOESN'T

GET WET INSIDE.

WE ARE SAFE AND WARM AND

SLEEP WELL NOW.

WE ARE SO HAPPY AND

THANKFUL THAT I CAN GO BACK

TO SCHOOL.

THANK YOU.

MY FAMILY AND I ARE VERY

GRATEFUL TO CBN.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP.
