Photo taken on Dec. 21, 2017 shows a well at the former site of Hantianling Village of Hexi Township, Wuzhong City, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region. The well used to be drinking water source for Hantianling villagers, who were relocated to other more liveable places in 2013. Hantianling, meaning the mountain of drought in Chinese, is located in the remotest mountainous region of Ningxia. The annual evaporation here is more than 2,000 mm, meanwhile the annual precipitation is only around 500 mm. Drought had always been the biggest threat for local people. There was never enough water for drinking and irrigation, let alone the use for further development. A total of 2,372 villagers out of 2,761 were living below the national poverty line. In recent years, local authorities tried very hard to eliminate poverty. Channels stretching out several miles were constructed, new houses were built, villagers were relocated, cattle were raised, and the village revived. (Xinhua/Wang Peng)
