A 9-year-old girl in Guangnan County, Yunnan Province has melted the hearts of Chinese netizens for carrying her disabled brother on her back to class every day.

A 9-year-old girl in Guangnan County, Yunnan Province has melted the hearts of Chinese netizens for carrying her disabled brother on her back to class every day, people.cn reported. 

The journey from their dormitory to the classroom is about 500 meters, taking them across roads and up and down stairs.

No matter what the weather, rain or shine, Zhou Dingshuang can be seen carrying her 12-year-old brother, Zhou Dingfu, on her back. The siblings have never been late for school.

In consideration of their special condition, the school arranged a dormitory for the brother and sister to live in together, enabling the little girl to take good care of her brother day to day. The school also exempted them from paying for their uniforms, insurance and meals.

They get out of bed earlier than other students every morning as Dingshuang also needs to spend some time to help her brother get washed and prepared.

On weekends and holidays, apart from helping her brother with homework, she also does a lot of housework.

The optimistic girl said caring for her brother was not "toilsome" and thinks it's her unique "glory" and "mission".

She said, "I will always be my brother's 'little crutches', play with him, take care of him and never leave him on his own."

Chinese netizens were greatly touched by the young girl, with one commenting, "What a considerate girl — the love between them is really deep."
