It doesn’t happen often, but every now and then you hear a story about people overcoming all odds to help others and it completely changes your perspective of the world. The story of Jia Haixia and Jia Wenqi is certainly one of these.

Haixia and Wenqi are two 53-year-old men from China who have faced incredible challenges in their lives. Haixia was born with congenital cataracts that caused him to be blind in one eye. He then lost sight in his one good eye after a work accident in 2000. Wenqi tragically lost both of his arms in an accident when he was only three years old and has been living as a double amputee ever since.

Despite their physical setbacks, Haixia and Wenqi have remained utterly determined to live life to the fullest. These two best friends help one another navigate the world and when they’re together there is nothing that they cannot do.

Adding to their amazing story of friendship is the fact that the pair have managed to plant over 10,000 trees over the course of the past 10 years.

“I am his hands,” said Haixia. “He is my eyes. We are good partners.”

The pair met in 2001 when they were both struggling to find work because of their disabilities.

Neither wanted to “give up” on life, so they hatched a plan to plant trees to earn money.

By planting trees, they could give back to the community and ensure a better future for others. With this idea in mind, they set out to lease three acres of land from the government and got to work.

Haixia and Wenqi rise every day at 7AM and set out to plant trees. When they reach the busy stream they need to cross to get to their site, Wenqi carries Haixia to the other side.

Money is tight, but the pair are determined to reforest their land. Unable to buy new saplings, they use cuttings from older trees to sprout new life.

When it comes time to scale trees to collect cuttings, Wenqi carefully directs Haixia, acting as his eyes.

The work requires much patience and the fruits of their labors are not always apparent. But seeing young saplings grow inch by inch is enough to bring Haixia and Wenqi peace of mind.

“We stand on our own feet,” Wenqi tells Oddity Central. “The fruits of our labor taste sweeter. Even though we are gnawing on steam buns, we find peace in our hearts.”

A number of generous people have volunteered to help Haixia and Wenqi after hearing their story; one kind benefactor has offered to pay for a surgery that could help restore Haixia’s sight, and another has donated money towards their pensions to ensure they always have a good roof over their heads and enough food to eat.

Isn’t it amazing to see one kind action turn into countless others? Take a page from these two today and help keep the compassion going!

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don\'t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: [email protected] or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS

i never believe that there still exist a real death spell caster after all this years of disappointment from the enormous spammers on the Internet who go about scamming people, until i was opportune to meet peter wise popularly known as the Noble man, through a close friend Mr Bernard who he (peter Wise) had helped before ,when i contacted him with his email via [email protected] ,i explain how my ex have been giving me problem in my marriage , she never allowed me a moment of peace,and i need to end it by killing her ,and i don\'t want to make use of assassin because it will be risky so i needed to do it in a spiritual way that\'s why i decided to contact him , he assured me not to worry as i have contacted the right person at the right time, i co-operated with him and in less than a week my ex was dead , she slept and never woke up all thanks to peter Wise indeed he is really a noble man ...
you can contact peter Wise for any death spell, such as to kill your superior in the office and take his or her place , death spell to kill your father and inherit his wealth ,death spell to kill anyone who have scammed you in the past ,spell for increase in salaries , spell for promotion at the office , spell to get your ex lover back, if things is not working well in your life then you need to contact peter wise .

My Name is jennifer am from London..I never believed in Love Spells or Magics until I met this special spell caster when i contacted this man called .Dr akhere.He is really powerful..My husband divorced me with no reason for almost 5 years and i tried all i could to have him back because i really love him so much but all my effort did not work out.. we met at our early age at the college and we both have feelings for each other and we got married happily for 4 years with two kids and he woke up one morning and he told me he is going on a divorce..i thought it was a joke and when she came back from work she tender to me a divorce letter and he packed all his properties from our house..i ran mad and i tried all i could to have her back but all did not work out..i was lonely for almost 5years.So when i told the spell caster what happened he said he will help me and he asked for his full name and her picture..i gave him that..At first i was skeptical but i gave it a try cos have tried so many spell casters and there is no solution.so when he finished with the readings,he got back to me that she’s with a man and that man is the reason why she left me.The spell caster said he will help me with a spell that will surely bring her back.but i never believe all this.he told me i will see a positive result within 24 hour..24 hour later after the spell has been casted,he called me himself and came to me apologizing and she told me she will come back to me..I cant believe this,it was like a dream cos i never believe this will work out after trying many spell casters and there is no solution..The spell caster is so powerful and after that he helped me with a pregnancy spell and my wife got pregnant again ..we are now happy been together again and with lovely kids..This spell caster has really changed my life and i will forever be thankful to her..he has helped many friends too with similar problem and they are happy and thankful to her..This man is indeed the most powerful spell caster have ever experienced in life..Am Posting this to the Forum in case there is anyone who has similar problem and still looking for a way out.

Greetings,
Just want to use this opportunity to tell the world about Dr.Astogo that help me get back my lover at the time of difficulties in our relationship, after he abandoned me for good 8 months with pains and tears in my heart. i am Grace from united states. my boyfriend before we broke up usually insult and see nothing good in anything i do, i felt as if i was cursed. my friends advice me to let go but i couldn\'t because of the love i have for him, which was so strong and could even do anything to satisfy him in a speed of light. After 2 days of my contact with DR.Astogo of [email protected] my boyfriend came back with apologies and love that he had never shown to me before. Right now he doesn\'t insult me any more rather he tells me how pretty and wonderfully made i am each morning that goes by. one thing i love about DR. Astogo is that he is so accommodating and encouraging. You can contact him for help via: [email protected] or call him +393510025283 he lives in Europe i just want you to contact him if you have such problem he is ready to help you no matter the country you Are.
