Examines the problems faced by people in rural communities in China who cannot afford to pay for medical service. Follows 26 undergraduate students from Hong Kong as they travel to Shantou, Guangdong and its surrounding rural communities providing free treatment for minor ailments and hygiene education for children. Sun Delin (Shantou University Medical Aid for the Poor Project) describes the lack of hygiene and health education in the area. The greatest problem facing the people is lack of funds for treatment, but Sun often performs major operations with poor equipment.
