Heroic schoolboy caring for his troubled family

A primary school student in Shenzhaung village in Ningjin county, Shandong province, wakes at five each morning to prepare the day`s three meals for his handicapped mother and blind 80-year-old grandma, who suffers from heart disease.

Shen Xinyue, 8, is assuming tremendous responsibilities because his father works outside the village to make money to support the family.

After his mother and grandma, who are both bed stricken, finish their breakfast, Shen then walks 2.5 km to attend school.

According to his mother Sun Jun`e, Shen learned how to prepare the breakfast for her and her mother-in-law at the age of two.
