Helping Homeless Migrants: Shenzhen, China *RERUN
While migrant workers helped build Shenzhen into the third largest urban economy in China, many find themselves left behind by the prosperity, instead ending up exhausted and homeless. Yi Xiong is a volunteer who is a migrant himself, and spends time outside of work looking for local migrants who have been rendered homeless. He offers them warm meals, helps them find jobs, and encourages them to make the often difficult choice to return to families in their hometowns and start their lives anew.
