Rongrong, separated from her parents, lives with her grandfather
Zou Farong (Rongrong) was born on November 15th, 1999. Though she is only four years old, she has no mother or father around to care for her.
Both Rongrong’s father Zou Songtao and mother Zhang Yunhe were Falun Gong practitioners. Because Zou Songtao did not renounce his belief in Falun Gong, he was arrested many times before finally being sentenced to forced labour in Wangcun Village Forced Labour Camp in Zibo City, Shandong Province. Zou was eventually tortured to death on November 3rd, 2000. Rongrong was only 11 months old then. Rongrong's mother, Zhang Yunhe, was an accountant at TFL China Limited in Qingdao City. Because she practises Falun Gong, the company suspended her from her job. In May 2001, Zhang Yunhe was discovered to have handed out materials explaining about Falun Gong and the persecution. To avoid arrest, she went into exile. There has been no news of her for a long time.
As a result, Rongrong had to live with her grandparents since she was two-and-a-half years old. Rongrong's grandmother could not withstand the grief of separation from her daughter and losing her son-in-law. She passed away in August 2001. Father, mother and grandmother, the three dearest ones to Rongrong, have left her in succession.
