What would you do for the people you love? This 12-year old boy proved he will do anything for his grandmother. Wangzhen is from China. On a normal and even on a hot summer day, he is scouring the streets where he lives and other places so he can get trash. He collects these trash and exchanges them for some money. Hot weather doesn’t bother him. At 43.5 degrees Celsius, he is holding a bag and looks for trash. That’s how determined he is.
You may ask why is he doing this at his young age. The simple yet endearing and even sad answer is that his grandmother is sick. To give a background about this boy; his mother abandoned him when he was 2. His father is still alive but got on an accident that severed his right arm. His father now works part-time but he only has a meager salary to support the family. Wangzhen’s grandmother also died when he was 9 and she left behind a large debt amount. At that time, the young boy depended on his grandfather.
When his stepmother came into his life, the young boy became happy and she became his mother. There was a problem though; his stepmother is sick with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. They brought her to the hospital. The young boy took care of her.
The situation of his stepmother prompted him to do what he can to save her that’s why he is collecting trash. Her illness is a chronic one and the doctors said that it can cause her, her life. This devastated the young boy that’s why he is doing everything he can to help her. What’s troublesome is that treatments for this illness cause a lot.
Let’s all hope Wangzhen find someone with a golden heart to help him with his ordeal. The post has gone viral and this can be a way to help the boy find donors.
