Our favorite bromance has finally hit the big time! “Great Big Story,” a socially-distributed digital video network owned by CNN, recently released a heartwarming video starring none other than Jia Haixia and Jia Wenqi.
If you aren’t already familiar with these two pals, they are the ones who turned a barren wasteland into a forest, despite only having one pair of working arms and eyes between the two of them. Though they were initially mocked by their fellow villagers, they persevered, planting over 10,000 trees in 14 years, becoming a sensation in China last year when their story went viral on social media.
Watch the video below:
However, apparently, “Great Big Story” didn’t talk to the pair too recently, because lately things haven’t been going so great for the heroic duo. It turns out that despite the overwhelming support they received online last year, very little of it actually turned into tangible, monetary help.
Currently, they are stuck trying to forest a barren slope, but with no nearby water source, they have to trek two kilometers and back to water their saplings. They’d like to dig a well, but don’t have the resources to afford it.
