Multimillionaire Xiong Shuihua started from humble beginnings in the small Xiongkeng village located in southern China. Since his early years Shuihua has earned a great deal of success in the construction industry. Even as a multimillionaire the steel tycoon never forget where he came from, and he has found a way to give back by building new homes for free in his old hometown.
Shuihua speaks highly of his roots and all of the people in his community that helped support him throughout the years. He always said he would find a way to repay them, and now he has followed through on his word in a bigger way than ever expected.
Shuihua returned to Xiongkeng village with bulldozers to remove the huts that still filled his childhood hometown, he promised that he had something much better for his family, friends and old neighbors… a brand new town.
Shuihua has spent millions of his own dollars to build beautiful luxury apartments and villas in the small village he once called home. Over the last few years, 90 families have been blessed with new homes for free thanks to his kind-hearted generosity.
72 families were given luxury flats, and an additional 18 families that were particularly kind to the businessman will be moving into their own luxury villas, a separate project totaling over 5 million dollars.
Xiong Shuihua said of his generous gesture, “I earned more money than I knew what to do with, and I didn’t want to forget my roots. I always pay my debts, and wanted to make sure the people who helped me when I was younger and my family were paid back.”
This businessman’s kindness doesn’t stop there; in fact he has found even more ways to give back to his hometown. Shuihua provides three meals a day for the elderly and low-income residents that call the village home.
Just five years ago, Xiongkeng village was a very different place full of run down wooden huts. Today, the village is beautiful with brand new luxury homes and a whole new world of hope.
The multimillionaire made his first chunk of money in the construction industry, and has since expanded his fortune in the steel trade industry. Unlike many rich people out there, Shuihua deserves every last penny he has earned.
Qiong Chu, a 75-year-old local, said, “I remember his parents. They were kind-hearted people who cared very much for others, and it’s great that their son has inherited that kindness.”
