96-Year-Old Man Saves Village From Demolition By Painting It.

Long ago, the Nantun District, Taichung was a gorgeous little village with more than 1,200 houses.

Huang Yung-Fu had retired to a small Taiwanese village and spent over 37 years living there. He assumed that this was where he would take his last breath, but the government had other ideas. His entire life changed when he learned they planned to storm into his village and tear it down. He knew he had to act fast. There was no time to waste. If he just stood by and did nothing, then the life he and his neighbors had created in this quaint little village would get lost forever. So he did something extraordinary!

Most of the people who lived here were former soldiers, whom the government gave temporary housing to. But eventually, the word temporary became permanent for one particular soldier.
