Village Rebuilt To Give Mansions To Residents By Millionaire

Five-years-ago this village was still wooden huts, and muddy roads. But that was before multimillionaire former resident Xiong Shuihua turned up, bulldozed it all away and built luxury accommodation for everyone.

He was born in the Xiongkeng village in the city of Xinyu in southern China’s Jiangxi province in 1955 and said that his family had always been well looked after, and helped and supported by the other villagers.

So when 54-year-old Shuihua ended up becoming a multimillionaire he decided to repay their kindness, by returning to the village and giving everybody a place of their own to live.

As a result 72 families were given large luxury flats in the new housing complex that he created, and 18 families who were particularly kind to the businessman were given villas of their own in a project costing close to 4 million GBP.

And after moving in, he also promised three meals a day to the older residents and people on a low income to make sure they can get by.

The multimillionaire made his money first of all in the construction industry and later by getting involved in the steel trade.

He said: “I earned more money than I knew what to do with it, and I didn’t want to forget my roots. I always pay my debts, and wanted to make sure the people helped me when I was younger and my family were paid back.”

Elderly local Qiong Chu, 75, said: “I remember his parents, they were kind-hearted people who cared very much for others, and it’s great that their son has inherited that kindness.”
