Diarra Boubacar, born in Mali, West Africa, is the first foreigner to have earned his doctorate in traditional Chinese medicine in China.

He came to China in 1984, and in 1997, Diarra joined in a World Health Organization training project to Southwest China's Yunnan province and met with a special group - rural doctors. Since then, he began to offer free medical services to Yunnan's rural villagers and has trained more than 3,000 village doctors in the past 22 years.

This video tells his story of how he contributed to rural health care and helped villagers shake off poverty by providing basic medical treatment.

This video is the seventh in our series The Flaming Happiness.
