Blind Man and His Armless Friend Have Planted Over 10,000 Trees in China

September 6, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Humanity

For the past 10 years, a blind man named Jia Haixia and his friend who is a double amputee, named Jia Wenqi, have been replanting trees in Yeli Village, northeastern China to try and revive the once baron landscape.

Haixia was born blind in on eye and lost sight in the other due to a work related accident. Wenqi also lost both of his arms in an accident at just 3-years-old. The two of them leased 8 acres of land from the government and started planting trees to try and protect their village from flooding.
