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.
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.
