A junkman, also known as a "king of garbage collection" in Dalian of Liaoning
Province, has donated 1 million yuan (US$125,970) to rural rest homes and
schools over the past 23 years.
Since 1983, Wang Xingmei has contributed to childless elderly persons living
in rural community-based hospices and students from needy families.
Last year, he set up a rural welfare foundation, the first non-government one
in Dalian, to secure the living of all villagers aged above 60.
