Aerial photo taken on May 20, 2020 shows the former site of Zhaojiawa village in Kelan county of Xinzhou city, North China's Shanxi province. Zhaojiawa village was a severely impoverished village located in Lyuliang Mountains with poor production and living conditions. Villager Cao Liuren and his wife used to live in a shabby old house in Zhaojiawa village, and "getting out of the mountains" was their biggest wish. On Sept 22, 2017, 21 villagers from six households in Zhaojiawa village, including Cao Liuren, moved to Guanghuiyuan poverty-relief relocation area, a residential community that covers an area of more than 700 mu (about 46.7 hectares) and can accommodate more than 20,000 persons. After the relocation, Cao found a job in a glass wool factory in the county which provides his family with a steady income to make a better life. [Photo/Xinhua]
