Over the past 47 years, Liu Shide has never stopped doing volunteer repair work on roads in his village.

Liu, 83, a resident of Xinhe village in Mishan city, Northeast China's Heilongjiang province, began the work in 1972 when he found that villagers and vehicles were greatly affected by terrible road conditions, especially in rainy days.

"In the old days, villagers seldom went out of the village because of inconvenient transportation," he said. "Even walking around the village, our clothes and shoes often became quite dirty because of the dust in sunny days and mud in rainy days."
