Wang Jiade, 79, looks after his paralyzed wife and works on the farm. He is looking forward to his 80, because he can get 1 yuan’s aid from the government every day.
Wang Kaihe, tall and humourous, said: “This damn shelter will collapse soon”, standing under the house he built himself.
Wang Jiayun, nearly blind and deaf, is always teased by the others as a dupe.
Wang Jiashou, 78, is losing weight quickly and has serious tracheitis and coughs every few minutes.
Wang Changqu, 75, still looks after his two grandsons now, because his son is in the prison and his daughter-in-law married the other man after divorcing his son.
Wang Yunfang cannot work now and only walks everyday. He hopes the government can give him the lowest allowance one day before his death.
