Miao Xiang comes from Vietnam and she works in Singapore. When browsing a Vietnamese website in 2016, she came across forced organ harvesting in China.

I have never read a good book like this,” she exclaimed. Later she read more Falun Gong books and decided to join the practice.
Ms. Zhang, 74, comes from northeastern China. “After my father began to practice Falun Gong, he almost became like a different person—very kind and considerate. Because of that, my grandfather, mother, sisters, and I all began to practice it,” she recalled. Through these years of persecution, her father was harassed and arrested numerous times. “But he did not waver and told police officers facts of Falun Gong. There are many determined practitioners like him in China,” added Ms. Zhang.
