Jijue Jizhu goes downhill with his younger brother on his shoulder, to take the bus heading to his grandpa's new dwelling in Yuexi County of Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture, southwest China's Sichuan Province, Feb. 2, 2018. Jijue Jizhu, 9, carrying his little brother on the back, walks on a rugged path in heavy snow in the remote Daliang Mountains, to help his family move to grandpa's new dwelling. With the help of government's poverty relief policy, Jijue Jizhu's family and his grandpa are relocated to more liveable villages. Jijue Jizhu's family has got a government subsidy of 30 thousand yuan to build a new house in the New Dabu Village, where Jijue Jizhu could start his new semester. Since the new house is not done yet, the family decided to first move to the new dwelling of Jijue Jizhu's grandpa in the New Shaku Village, which is close to the New Dabu Village, and where they can be better facilitated. Jijue Jizhu's family is expected to move into their new house by the end of this year. (Xinhua/Tian Jianchuan)
