A doctor in east China was greatly touched after he received a note and bread from an unnamed child, People's Daily reported.

Mao Sihong, a chief physician of Ophthalmology at Quzhou People's Hospital in Zhejiang Province, discovered a bag of bread and a note on his desk at around 12:40pm on June 19 after he finished treating a patient and returned to his consulting room.

He began seeing patients and carefully explaining their conditions to them in the morning, working all the way until 1pm without a break.

The note read, "Dear doctor, my child bought this bread for you as he feels you are working so hard looking after us patients without eating lunch. Since he's too shy to give you this directly we put it on your desk."

The thoughtful parent and child didn't leave their names on the note, but their action really moved Dr Mao.

Although he didn't eat the bread he still took it home that night to share the story with his own child.

As there were many child patients that day, Dr Mao wasn't sure exactly who the thoughtful child was, but he still shared the touching story on his WeChat Moments, receiving more than 100 "likes."

Dr Mao said, "Kid, thank you for your bread and your kindness. You gave us the courage to stick to our work. I hope you grow up healthily and always keep your warm heart."
