So, by looking at the lush, green, tree-filled stretch of land north of the Yeli Village in Sunzhuang Township, Jingxing County, Hebei, China, it is really hard to believe that just 12 years ago, these plains surfaces were filled with nothing, just with rocks and weeds. But this miraculous transformation is all due to the exorbitant hard working and dedication of duo have been planting thousands of trees in an effort to protect and preserve the natural ecology of the land surrounding their village.
A blind man named “Jia Haixia” and his friend “Jia Wenqi”, a double amputee with no arms has spent over 10 years replanting trees to revive the once-barren environment. The brave man, Haixia was born blind in one eye and lost the other eye in 2000 in a work-related accident. However; Wenqi lost both of his arms in an accident when he was only 3 years old. Both are great friends and together, they’ve leased 8 acres of land from the government and have started replanting the land with trees to protect the village from flooding. We must say; in life there’s no excuse for us not doing things when these two do so much with so little.
The power of the human spirit is incredible. It is really remarkable what God can do in us when we don't give up. Their tenacity and combined efforts to protect the environment put all of us who are physically normal but nothings do in fact. We must acknowledge their dedications & efforts in order to support in our prayers to get the required physical and financial and moral support. That is what we can do for the time being. After they went viral in China, Haixia may receive surgery for his blinding, congenital cataract.They’re such a wonderful pair of good companions. They’re really heroes! Indeed they’re deserve a big salute and hurray to them.
