"Sun is someone who can bring hope to those of us in similar conditions," he said. "After getting used to my new arm, I decided to learn the techniques of making prosthetic arms from him. Then, I can help more people."

Sun has several apprentices studying under him and one prosthetic arm can be usually completed within three days if a person masters skillful techniques.

With more disabled people around the country coming to his workshop to have prosthetic arms fitted on them, Sun built a two-story building to provide them free accommodation.

He also provides free maintenance service for his customers and they only need to pay for the cost of new prosthetic arms if they wanted an upgrade.

"I will never profit from people with disabilities," he said.

"I just hope to help them live and work independently like normal people.

"Even if we have suffered misfortunes, we shouldn't yield to fate," he added. "We can still create our happiness through wisdom and hard work."
