Wei Cheng – China
Jinyita Village, Daning County, Shanxi Province, China
Cheng Wei (54) left her comfortable job and home and moved to a remote village in Shanxi Province, China. She put all her efforts – and her own funds – into developing the economy and culture of the area, focusing on road building, electricity and water supplies, schools, and the purchase of trees and seeds.
Sorry, not any other sure information is available through Google. All 25 pages of Google links by Images arriving under ‘Wei Cheng’ are describing other persons that the one of the photo we have. Thus, any text can not be recognished as belonging to ‘our’ Wei Cheng.
But this is not a reason to forget her. Maybe she had an interesting story. We do not know which profession she had before moving to this remote village. Why has she left her city or village, je job, her home? What happened to make her move? Move as a Party member!
