A poor university student whose education was financed by a pilot for the last seven years has had all ties with his benefactor cut after the pilot sent a final message saying he did not need to repay him and requested no further contact.
Xie Yang, not his real name, is a fourth-year student at the Southwest Minzu University in Chengdu, Sichuan, southwestern China. He is seeking help from the media to find his benefactor whom he knew only as “Brother Ice”.
The Good Samaritan who lives in Zhejiang province, eastern China, ceased Weixin – the mainland version of WeChat – communication with Xie after sending him a final payment of 6,000 yuan (US$941) and a parting message last week, the Qianjiang Evening News reported.
“Having financially aided your education, I don’t need any returns from you. It’s only because I saw my childhood in you and it was too cruel for me to turn a blind eye,” Brother Ice wrote in the message.
