Once living in poor conditions, the family of quadruplet girls now shakes off poverty in E China's Jiangxi.
GANZHOU, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) — Wu Nianyou, a farmer in Shangbao Village of Ganzhou City, and his wife saw their quadruplet daughters come to the world on a morning in September 2010. They named their daughters Wu Mengling, Wu Mengting, Wu Mengyun and Wu Mengqin, who became their worry to raise up with little income only from the fields.
Being premature babies, the girls were in poor health conditions which needed lots of money to treat. With the help of the local government and society, the family overcame their difficulties in the hardest two years of their life.
Basic living allowances were given to the girls and the couple were offered jobs near their home. Henhouse, duck shed and fish pool were built near their house by the local government as ways to increase their income, and a three-layer house was built in 2016 in the help of local policy.
On Jan. 1, 2019, the family shook off poverty and now live a better life.
