Chinese Millionaire Returns to Village, Builds Residents Free Luxury Homes for their Kindness Growing Up
Millionaire Chinese businessman Xiong Shuihua returned to his childhood village of Xiongkeng to do something special for the residents that treated him and his family so well growing up.
The 54-year-old business tycoon—who amassed millions from the construction and steel industries—returned to his village and bulldozed wooden huts and muddy roads, replacing them with brand new luxury homes and paved streets for 72 families. All for free.
According to the Daily Mail, the businessman also built free luxury villas for 18 families that he said were particularly kind to him and his family growing up. Xiong also pledged three free meals daily to all elderly and low-income residents.
The village of Xiongkeng is located in the city of Xinyu in Southern China. The entire project is said to have cost the businessman over $6 million USD. He tells the Daily Mail:
‘I earned more money than I knew what to do with, and I didn’t want to forget my roots. I always pay my debts, and wanted to make sure the people who helped me when I was younger and my family were paid back.’
