A doctor dedicates herself to a village in Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region for 30 years

Xiaozhai village, Longji town, Longsheng autonomous county in Guilin, South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, is located at the foot of Fupingbao Mountain, which is more than 1,900 meters above sea level.

Hongyao is one of the branches of the Yao ethnicity, and they take this name out of their habit of dressing in red (pronounced hong in Chinese). Pan Jiping, 57, works as the village doctor and her chief responsibility is to protect the health of more than 1,200 villagers.

In 1988, Pan Jiping went to the county health school to study medicine in order to change the situation as it was extremely difficult for the villagers to find medical treatment, and minor illnesses often got delayed and developed into serious condition.
