#Inspiration: Man with no arms refuses to beg; takes care of his family alone

There are rare times when we meet someone so humble and full of goodness that that someone becomes our inspiration for life. Chen Xingyin is 48 years old farmer with no arms. He lost both his arms in a bad accident when he was just 7 years old. Despite all the physical weaknesses, Chen has been taking care of his 91-year-old mother, Yang Sifang all these years.

He uses his feet for picking and cutting vegetables.

He trained his feet when he was 20 years old after the death of his father. He was determined to help his mother as he had seen her working hard to take care of him and their family.

Some village people had advised Chen to go to the railway station to beg for alms but he refused to do so. Chen told them, “I may not have arms to work with, but I can use my feet,” according to People’s Daily Online.
