Fan Jian Bo, 11, was orphaned in 1998, and now lives with his aunt and uncle in Fanzhuang Village, Jiangsu Province, China.  The boy's father died of cancer in 1998, and soon after his mother committed suicide by drinking pesticide.  The boy's uncle has a cerebral embolism and the meager income the family has from growing cabbages and melons cannot support Fan Jian Bo continuing school.   (image by M. Scott Brauer)
