Meet Jia Haixia and Jia Wenqi, they are both 53 years old and planted together over 10.000 trees in 10 years to protect their own village against heavy waters.
Jia Wenqi was 3 years old when he lost both of his arms during a car accident. Jia Haixia was already blind on one eye since his birth and lost his other eye during a accident at his work. Jia & Jia call themselves a strong team of tree planters.
Every morning at 7 they wake up to plant trees, because they don't have enough money to buy young trees they collect their own cuttings.
Jia Haixia climbs into trees to find the best cuttings available.
Then he digs a hole were they plant the cuttings.
After that, Jia Wenqi takes care of the young trees by giving water and a lot of love.
These two men hope to protect their village against floods. And after their story went viral a special foundation was set up to collect money for this beautiful project.
I am his hands and arms, And he is my eyes. We are good partners and want to create a better world for our future generations.
