Taiwanese Girl Receives Filial Piety Award Days After the Grandpa She Cared for Passed Away

A young Taiwanese girl became emotional when she received a well-deserved “filial piety” award just a few days after her grandfather she had cared for passed away due to cancer.

With tears welling up, teenager Wei Yu-xuan accepted the award from Da Chien charity foundation at Da Chien Hospital on Wednesday, saying, “[I] wanted to dedicate the award to Grandpa in the heaven.” After receiving her award, the Xin-Gang Junior High School senior student from Miaoli County went back to her seat, lowered her head, and continued sobbing. Wei’s grandpa died three days before the award ceremony.
