The story of remote Huaniao Island, once home to busy fishing communities, then depopulated as the younger generation went in search of jobs on the Chinese mainland, leaving their elderly relatives to live in solitude. But the tides are changing…

Young people are now being drawn back to the island, not only by its natural beauty and peace, but also by a sense of charity.

The younger generation are not only renovating the island’s colourful buildings and opening them as restaurants and guest houses, they’re also volunteering to travel by boat to the remoter islands to help the elderly with a host of practical needs
