In the late 1950s, New China experienced severe natural disasters, and a large number of orphans in the southern region faced a crisis of insufficient nutrition.
At this critical moment, the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region Party Committee and the government took the initiative to ask the central government for assistance. Following the principle of "take one, raise one, strengthen one," they brought nearly 3,000 orphans to the vast grasslands and entrusted them to kind-hearted and sincere herders for adoption.
Here, the children, who were far away from their hometowns, had to learn to integrate into a new environment and family, and face their new relatives. However, all their anxieties and pains would be resolved one by one by the overwhelming love from fellow human beings.
