Meng Guangbin runs a shoe repair shop in Harbin, Northeast China's Heilongjiang province.

In the past 29 years, he has mended over 120,000 shoes for free and donated more than 30,000 yuan.

The 54-year-old shoemaker arrived in Harbin from Dongping county, Shandong province, in 1988 and since then devoted himself to his business. During the past three decades he has won many honors including being named one of the 10 Outstanding Volunteer of Heilongjiang, one of the 10 Persons Who Move Harbin and the May 1 Labor Medal.

He has also been dubbed the "Lei Feng Shoemaker" for his kindness and work ethic.

In 1998, he became the first rural migrant worker to become a Party member province.

"I have been following the example of Lei Feing, a social paragon known for his unselfishness and devotion to the Communist Party of China, since I was a teenager," said Meng. "After joining the Party, I fortified my faith that to serve the people is my duty, especially those who are in extreme need."
