Chongyang Festival: Good shoe samaratan
Cao Cuihua in Jianhu County, Yancheng City in east China's Jiangsu Province, has for the last 21 years made cloth shoes for the residents of local nursing homes. Over the period she has made about 2,000 pairs of shoes and presents them to the senior citizens every year before the Chongyang Festival to honor the elderly. During the day Cao works as a cleaner and makes her shoes in her spare time. Despite failing eyesight she has continued with her good work this year.
