TWENTY-ONE years ago, He Rongfong (何榮峰) left his village for Taizhou (台州市), Zhejiang Province (浙江省) in China. He wanted to get a job to help support his poor family. Unfortunately, he had to beg.
Most people would just give him some coins. But Dai Xingfen (戴杏芬), who owned a noodle shop, not only fed him, but also let him sleep in the tiny place she shared with her husband. She tried to find a job for him but failed. So she gave him money to take a train and find a job somewhere else.
He is now the Chairman of the Shenyang Jiu Jiu Li Feng Group (瀋陽玖玖利峰集團). He is rich and happy, but never forgot the kind woman. He found her and thanked her face to face. He wanted to give her tens of thousands of dollars but she did not accept it. Instead, she was given a large plaque with the words: ‘Kindness as heavy as a mountain’ (「恩重如山」) on it.
