Story of a 'left-behind child' in SW China

10-year-old He Yuanxi and her grandmother lead cattle home in Fengle Village of Yangjie Township of Xundian country, Southwest China's Yunnan province, Aug. 2, 2016. He Yuanxi, a typical "left-behind child" in Chinese rural area, has been living with her 60-year-old grandmother as her father chooses to work in big cities after divorce. The girl, who just completed the fourth year study in primary school, helps her grandmother to do housework, herd cattle and do farm work in this summer vacation. The phrase "left-behind children" is used in China to describe rural children whose parents work in other cities. Left-behind children usually live with relatives, often their grandparents, while their parents work away from home. [Photo/Xinhua]
