[China] An Honorable Dafa Disciple
A Dafa disciple from Mainland China said, "The money we have earned is to be used for offering salvation to people in the Fa-rectification period right now."

They also supplied money for supporting those practitioners who live in exile. This practitioner's mother has been detained for nearly a year.

Chunling was forced to leave home and live in exile. As most of practitioners were in difficult financial situation, she had to go back home.
