The Millionaire Who Rebuilt a Village

 
Have you ever fantasized about becoming a millionaire and surprising all the people that were there for you along the way? Well this is the recent story of a man who did just that, and in a splendid way.

54-year-old Xiong Shuihua was born in a little village called Xiongkeng, in Southern China. Many times during his childhood, he recalls, the kind villagers helped him and his family, when they were going through hard times. In time, he grew to become a successful businessman who made millions in the steel industry.

The business tycoon recently headed back to his home village. These were the huts and dirty houses the poor villagers had to live in.

They only had dirt roads filled with mud and old detritus was heaped everywhere one looked.

Xiong saw this and decided to change the lives of these kind villagers forever. 

"
I earned more money than I knew what to do with, and I didn’t want to forget my roots. I always pay my debts, and wanted to make sure the people who helped me and my family when I was younger were paid back." He said.

He had all the huts torn down and instead built luxury apartments and villas for all the villagers.

He then replaced the muddy dirt roads with nicely paved streets.

The kind millionaire even promised that any elderly or low income families who need it will get 3 meals a day free of charge.

Thanks to him, 72 families are living in luxury apartments and another 18, who have been especially kind to his family, got their own villas. This is after living in wooden huts for decades.

A local man by the name of Qiong Chu, age 75, said:

I remember his parents. They were kind-hearted people who cared very much for others, and it’s great that their son has inherited that kindness.’
