Tang Caixia (1st L) poses for a group photo with family members at the gate of her home in Yaogou Village of Nanshu Town in Laixi, east China's Shandong Province, Feb. 27, 2018. Tang Caixia, aged 37, has supported her uncle for over four years.

Five years ago, Tang's uncle Ge Songting got very sick. Though he was rescued from death, he was paralyzed. Ge has never got married before, so there's no immediate family to support him. In this case, he had to be sent to nursing home.

When Tang visited her uncle at the nursing home four years ago, she decided to bring him home for Spring Festival. Since then, Ge was not sent back to nursing home and supported by Tang Caixia.

In order to take care of her uncle, Tang gave up her previous peddling business and planted peach trees in village. In this way, she could make some money through peach selling and conveniently look after uncle.

Thanks to Tang Caixia, her uncle is able to walk with assistance now. [Xinhua/Ding Hongfa]
