« My mother and father are in Jinan to take care of my sister. I’m here to sell sweet potatoes to earn extra money, » explained Mei innocently, and her video of selling sweet potatoes immediately went viral on the Weibo site.

Jinan itself is located quite far from Zibo city which is about 110 km. Her mother, Li Ling, admitted that her husband had to stop working so he could help her take care of their youngest daughter after suffering from cancer.

When the husband stops working, of course this family loses their source of livelihood. For the sake of treating the princess, Ling and husband already have a lot of debt. They have tried to collect donations and have collected around 52,000 (Rp 117 million).

However, the money was still not enough to cover Mei’s sister’s medical expenses. That’s why Mei started selling sweet potatoes after school, or every time she had school holidays.

« The price of sweet potatoes is 12 yuan (Rp. 27,000) per bag. If they sell well, I can sell more than 10 bags of sweet potatoes, » continued Mei, who has lived with her grandmother while their parents were in Jinan since May last year.

Although Mei never complained about having to sell sweet potatoes for her sister. The mother often does not have the heart, imagining that Mei has to endure the cold to sell sweet potatoes on the roadside.

« Mei is still small, she has not seen the whole world. So no matter how hard the obstacles we face, we will help our child to recover, » concluded the mother.
