The photographer of this picture is Qi-xing Lu and he said that these pictures were shot on July 29th at Friends Primary School in the west region of Hunan province. The sister hurried to pick her brother when he cried during the sleep while she was attending class. Lu added that the little two children’s parents were working in the city and their grandparents needed to work on the farm. Therefore, the task of taking care of younger brother was left to this little girl. The younger brother’s head is bigger than healthy children because of being undernourished.

Teachers in this school said that this phenomenon was popular in this region and free lunch was expected for these children.

Although with the rapid economy development, inequality between rich and poor is still one big problem for China. People at the bottom of the society cannot enjoy the benefits of economy development.
