Attending school is crucial for children as it provides them with an opportunity to learn and prepare for their futures. However, there are millions of children around the world who are unable to go to school or are forced to attend schools in terrible conditions. A photo of a Chinese boy with a frozen head on his way to school has gone viral on the internet, and it is impossible not to be moved by it.
The boy’s name is Wang Fuman, and he is an eight-year-old who lives in Xinjie province in China. After his mother left him, Wang has been living with his grandmother as his father had to move to a big city to work. Wang’s school is located three miles away from his house, which means he has to walk for hours each day just to get there and back. With winter having set in, it has become even more challenging for him to make his way to school, with the temperature often dropping to -9 degrees Celsius.
The principal at Wang’s school took to social media to show the tough conditions that many of his students live with. The final photo that the principal uploaded of Wang Fuman has spread rapidly on the internet, showcasing how the little boy’s head is completely frozen. The photo reveals that his eyebrows are frozen, and his cheeks are burning from the cold. The principal explains that the boy decided to walk to school in extreme weather because he had a test to take.
Despite the cold, the little boy was determined to make it to school on time for the test. His hands were frozen while he completed the exam. The photo has sparked reactions worldwide, and many have expressed their concern and support for the boy. It’s unfortunate to see that Wang and millions of children like him are facing such challenges just to attend school. This photo serves as a reminder of the resilience of many children around the world and highlights the need for more efforts to provide quality education to all children, regardless of their circumstances.
