Ding Kailing and Ding Kaiming are sisters, and they also have a younger brother. The children's mother died of HIV/AIDS, and they live with their father. The Ding father is a famer, and earns a modest amount of money to pay for all of the family's expenses. Having no money to continue their education, the Ding sisters dropped out of school. Finding a job was hard and furthermore, the two sisters are dedicated and bright students. In 2004, AOS provided tuition and living stipends for the Ding sisters to continue their education. Currently, Ding Kailing is studying at the Huaibei Health School, and Ding Kaiming is studying at the Fuyang Health School. This year, they will graduate from school and become nurses. At AOS we hope for them the brightest possible future.
