Xinhua,January 13, 2020 Adjust font size:


Aerial photo taken on Jan. 9, 2020 shows the relocation site in Pinglang Village of Jishou City of Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture, central China's Hunan Province. The family of Xiang Mei has shaken off poverty and begun a new life since they moved out of the mountainous area and resettled in new residence with better natural environments and living conditions at Pinglang Village during local relocation programs for poor villagers at the end of 2017. Xiang, 34, gained her first job as a cleaner here. And together with her husband, Yang Yong, a worker on the construction site, Xiang makes the living for the family and raises their two children. "What impresses me most in the new resettlement is that the public transportation is much more convenient," Xiang said. And she hopes life is getting better. About 135 people from 35 poverty-stricken households moved to this new relocation site after it was completed in 2017 and all of them have been lifted out of poverty. (Xinhua/Chen Zeguo)
