In Hainan, more than 700,000 people have successfully lifted out of poverty in the past few years. As a foreigner, Joshua was interested in the story of struggling against poverty. This time, he came to Maodao Village in Wuzhishan city, where there is a passion fruit base. Wonderful results come from scientific planning and top cultivation technology guidance for specific poverty alleviation by the cadres.

Joshua gained a deeper understanding of the process of Hainan’s poverty alleviation by interviewing the major secretary of Maodao Village Huang Yejun as well as the villagers.
