I’ve gone to res­cue cen­ters be­fore but left be­cause I didn’t want to go back to my home­town.”

76, who lives un­der a viaduct in Guangzhou, said he avoided mul­ti­ple res­cue cen­ters in the city that of­fer hot wa­ter and food be­cause he is afraid he will be es­corted back to his home­town in Shan­dong prov­ince. He claimed he would face a cash-strapped life there with an an­nual land rent of 300 yuan ($16) and a scant pen­sion of about 700 yuan. Sim­i­lar prob­lems have been re­ported this win­ter through­out China, ac­cord­ing to Xin­hua News Agency.
