A team of 'basket doctors' are making a difference in a remote part of Yunnan province

Bingzhongluo town is located in the Gongshan Derung and Nu autonomous county, in Nujiang Lisu autonomous prefecture, Yunnan province.

Even today, with good roads, it takes two and a half days for the 2,000-kilometer ride from there to Zhuhai, Guangdong province.

More than two years ago, Guan Yanping went from the Sanzhao Hospital in Jinwan district, Zhuhai, to help the poor there. She and her companions carried medical equipment and medicines, climbed cliffs, crossed the Nujiang River, and walked to 46 villages scattered in the deep mountain valley. They are called "basket doctors" by the locals.
