Zhang Yuanchao, a 15-year-old boy in Guangdong province who suffers from cerebral palsy, receives help from his generous classmates every day.

Zhang used to travel to Shenzhen and Guangzhou to undergo rehabilitation treatment. He wasn't able to walk until he was 6 years old. After turning 8, he finally began to attend school like other kids. His school performance was strong, and he began to livestream himself playing online games in July, attracting more than 2,300 fans.

Since being admitted to a local middle school in September, Zhang has received extra help and attention from his classmates.Almost all 45 students in his class have lent him a hand at one time or another. Some help him to the restroom; some keep him company during breaks; some carry his schoolbag on the way to the classroom.

According to his classmates, Zhang is a delightful companion to all. Zhang's mother expressed relief and gratitude for the efforts made by the students and teachers at Zhang's school.
