Wang He, 70, lives in a village in Ninghe county of Tianjin, north China. His mother, 96, has been paralyzed in bed for more than 10 years. Due to the family's condition, Wang has not married. He receives a basic living allowance of about 5,000 yuan (about 700 U.S. dollar) a year.

To take care of his mother, Wang only sleeps four to five hours a day. Every day he cleans his mother's body, washes her diapers and gives her massage. He keeps talking to her and tells her things that just happened, even though his mother could only nod her head in response. He hopes that his mother can live 100 years.
