Coming of age in flood relief work

The hard work performed during the flood relief has become a significant gift of sorts for young people coming of age in Feixi county, East China's Anhui province.

Hundreds of young people, who either just took the national college entrance examinations this year or were already college students, voluntarily joined the fight against the floods in Feixi.

They carried 15kg sandbags about 800 meters to reinforce the banks of the Paihe River.

These young people may not have done such hard work in the past, but they enjoyed the experience, even though they were left with blisters on their hands and shoulders.

Volunteer Liu Fangfang said it was tiring, but that she was proud of her work securing people's lives and properties.
