Global Times – Metro Beijing - - WORD MATTERS -

“I want to go back to my work as a food de­liv­ery­man, and I also want to par­tic­i­pate in one marathon.”

So said Wang Jian­sheng, a man from Hangzhou, Zhe­jiang Prov­ince who lost one of his legs dur­ing his child­hood but works hard as a food de­liv­ery­man. After a re­port of him de­liv­er­ing food with a walk­ing stick went viral on Chi­nese so­cial me­dia this sum­mer, many kind peo­ple were con­cerned about him and of­fered to help him. With the help of Zhe­jiang Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Med­i­cal Cen­ter, Wang’s dream fi­nally came true – he fi­nally has an ar­ti­fi­cial limb. Now he trains in the cen­ter for eight hours every day, and hopes to go back to his work as soon as pos­si­ble. Wang says he feels happy that more peo­ple are in­spired by his ex­pe­ri­ence.
