In May 2003, he had a letter from Taiwan to deliver. The recipient's name was written in pinyin, and the address was given as "Xiguanpo", with no specific street or house number. Mo knocked on doors until he finally found the intended recipient, an elderly woman in her 80s.

"The old woman cried when she saw the letter. It was from her long-lost brother, who she thought she'd never find again," Mo said, adding that he had delivered other improperly addressed items to 100 recipients.

"Behind each letter, there is a family or a relationship. I'm happy to be the link that connects thousands of families," he said.

Over the years, Mo's hard work has won him many honors. He has been nominated as an "excellent postman" and as an outstanding member of the Communist Party of China in Qiannan prefecture, as well as a national model worker.

This year, Mo was elected as a deputy to the National People's Congress.

During the recently concluded two sessions — the annual sessions of the 14th National People's Congress and the 14th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference — Mo proposed the creation of better postal services for the countryside based on the county, township and village logistics level, and proposed detailed measures for the creation of comprehensive postal service stations in each village.

"As a grassroots representative, it's my wish that rural areas get better, more convenient postal services to facilitate rural vitalization," he said.
