Jin Guilian lays in his hospital bed in San Tang town in Anhui province, his brother stands by his side. Jin Guilian was born with Ventricular Septal Defect, a heart disease. At the moment Jin Guilian also suffers from a blood infection due to a smaller infection in his right arm that went untreated for too long. Jin Guilianís diseases are curable, but the medical care doesnít exist in San Tang town. In fact rural healthcare throughout the country is in a horrible mess, often corrupt and unorganized.
