Wang Anna from Zunyi city in southwest China was only three months old when her father was sent to prison and left her mother to stay with the in-laws.
Anna’s mother remarried shortly after she was born, leaving the little one with her terminally ill grandmother and 92-year-old great-grandmother.
Anna, now 5, has become the sole caregiver of the family, cooking, cleaning and taking care of the two elderly women, according to the MailOnline.
The 5-year-old starts her day early to prepare meals for her grandmas.
On top of tending to her loved ones, Anna also does all of the housework — from dusting the floor to taking out the trash — and picking out fresh vegetables at a neighbor’s farm whenever they are out of food.
Anna’s short stature doesn’t stop her from standing on a stool and stretching to reach over the stove to cook the vegetables.
Her grandmother has long-term septic arthritis, also known as infectious arthritis, that causes pain from moving about too much.
Both Anna’s grandmother and great-grandmother are almost bedridden and have limited mobility, but she tries her best to bring them to the bathroom or take a stroll near the house.
Anna told local media that all she wants to do is take care of her grandmother and great-grandmother everyday, and she wishes them “good health.”
Young people all over the world should take note — this is how to respect your elders.
