This touching photo of a migrant worker’s daughter was erased by censors monitoring Sina Weibo, China’s version of Twitter. The caption simply said: “Waiting for you to come home.”
She represents millions of “left-behind children” in rural parts of the country whose parents go to find work in cities instead of farming which only produces a meager income.
Usually these children get brought up by a grandparent, and are vulnerable to being kidnapped, and sexual assault.
In China, there are estimated to be over 60 million such children living apart from their parents.
