Opinion:About young Mongolian man featured in Christian Science Monitor newspaper

After reading "People making a difference:Batdorj Gongor" in Christian Science Monitor newspaper dated Nov 16, I was impressed with this humble young Mongolian man Gongor. One time I lived in
Ger district of Ulaanbaatar. Western media describes Ger districts of Ulaanbaatar as "slums where Mongolian poor live"..However, it is not hundred percent true. There are many middle class people live there.
However, state care for residents of the Ger district is minimal. No centralized heating and sewage systems in Ger districts. Drinking water in Ger districts is delivered by water trucks and there is always long line of people waiting outside water reservoirs to get buckets of water.

Gongor, boyish-looking young man is attempting to organize Ger district residents to chip in for community funds.I don't know how successful Gongor is doing in his efforts. However, at least trying to do so is worth praise. If many young Mongolian men act like Gongor, Ger districts would be different place today.

I admire his enthusiasm and initiative.
