40 left-behind children from families in Hechi City of Guangxi Province boarded a train heading for Dongguan in Guangdong province for family reunion on August 3.
The free activity was organized by Hechi's Federation of Trade Unions. The week-long activity that commenced on Aug 3 includes visits to Guangzhou's scenic spots, taking family photos, a family reunion dinner, watching children's film, presenting books and schoolbags as gifts to the children and free time for affectionate interaction between the children and their parents.
Guangxi has over six million rural workers, with 700,000 of them make a living in Dongguan. Some of the children taking part in the activity haven't seen their parents for about two to three years. The activity helps enhance love between left-behind children and their migrant worker parents, and stimulate the workers to better devote to the development of the society.
