Tam Lin was born into a very poor family.
The girl was forced to help her parents from an early age.
A randomly met stranger was imbued with the difficult fate of Tam and paid for her studies at the university.
At that time, Zheng Hua did not yet suspect that a kind and generous act would save his own life in 12 years.
The girl grew up in a small village in Sichuan province. Money was constantly lacking, the father could not find a good job, the mother was too busy with the household.
Over time, Tam had to take care of her younger sisters.
A major earthquake only complicated the family’s situation. They lost their homes and were forced to move in with distant relatives.
In the new area, Tam, tired of worries, met businessman Zheng Hua. He himself grew up in a similar family, so he perfectly understood the situation of the poor girl.
Zheng Hua went with Tam to her parents and left his phone number.
He said to call when the girl finished school. Tam’s father did just that, and the businessman did not refuse his promises: he recommended the girl to enter the Sichuan Medical University and paid for her education.
Twelve years later, the adult Tam Lin was working at a prestigious hospital as a professional optometrist. And by chance, Zheng Hua was brought to this hospital.
“I was diagnosed with a very serious problem. The situation was getting out of control,” the businessman later recalled.
Lin worked in another department of the hospital, but immediately rushed to help.
She contacted her acquaintances, Zheng was quickly led through all the bureaucratic delays to the best doctors. And after two days it was completely stabilized.
“12 years ago I sent Tam to study. And now she’s saving my life. I just want to tell everyone about it: kindness pays off,” the businessman told reporters.
Tam Lin and Zheng Hua still maintain a relationship. Now both are feeling grateful.
