Home for 859 left-behind children

Deng Weixing, a meat retailer who runs a "home for left-behind students," helps them study at the home in Shitai township of Yingde city, South China's Guangdong province. Deng and his wife have been looking after children since 1981, caring for 859 children over 29 years, in this smallest township in Yingde city, also one of the most remote and poverty-stricken towns. All the children, left behind by their migrant worker parents, regard him as "dad" as he offers them food and shelter, and helps them finish primary school and high school.
