“小丁眼鏡”和沂南情聖杜元發老人足以感動全世界的感人故事
杜元發,山東省臨沂市沂南縣雙堠鎮孫家峪村村民,今年84歲,和妻子結婚五個月,一起健康生活了六天。但不離不棄、持之以恆照顧癱瘓在床的76歲妻子周玉愛56年,鄉親們紛紛為他們忠貞不渝的愛情點贊。
1958年11月,杜元發與本鎮姑娘周玉愛結婚。結婚六天后就回到礦上工作。新婚5個月的一天,當時在泰安市一家煤礦工作的杜元發突然接到家裡捎信:妻子患病臥床。他馬上請假趕回老家,發現妻子整個身體僵直,不能翻身,手也不能拿東西,吃飯全靠別人一口一口餵,大小便都在床上。
他用獨輪車推到多家醫院診治,醫生的診斷幾乎一樣:周玉愛一輩子將臥床不起,也沒有生育能力。別人勸他,趕快離婚吧,否則會耽誤自己一輩子。杜元發對妻子周玉愛說,你放心吧,我會一輩子疼你。隨後他毅然辭掉工作,天天在床邊伺候。
聽說偏方草藥能治大病,杜元發只要打聽到藥方,就立馬上山採藥試試,熬出藥後,擔心有毒,都是自己先品嚐後再讓妻子喝。夏天,杜元發擔心妻子會生瘡,天天擦洗身子。冬天天氣晴好,杜元發就把妻子抱到室外曬曬太陽。在杜元發精心照顧下,老伴在床上一躺就是56年,從沒生過褥瘡,屋子裡竟然沒有明顯異味。
他無微不至照顧癱瘓妻子,感動了很多鄉親,他是現代名副其實的情聖。
鄉里鄉親也都跑前跑後為老人拿藥買菜、送飯送糧。雙堠鎮黨委政府和有關部門把這對無兒無女的老人列為重點救助對象,讓他們吃穿無憂。
但隨著年齡的增長,他的視力逐年下降,眼睛已越來越看不清事物。沂南“小丁眼鏡”店“愛眼公益行“行動小組看到關於杜元發老人的報導後,深深被他的大愛之舉所感動,專程帶著驗光車到村里為杜元發老人驗光配鏡,並送去米麵、棉被等生活用品。當杜元發老人帶上現場配製的眼鏡後,高興地說:我這瞎眼也能看到東西了!!!

關於“小丁眼鏡” 愛眼公益行
據了解,自2013年以來,小丁眼鏡店針對農村偏遠、交通不便,老年人用眼知識匱乏,經濟困難,配鏡不方便等實際,主動聯繫有關部門,開展“第一書記送溫暖,小丁眼鏡獻愛心”活動,為老年人進行免費驗光、基礎眼部檢查,講解愛眼知識和健康配鏡用鏡理念,深受群眾歡迎。目前,先後為全縣幾十個村莊的3000多名老年人免費配鏡,並為部分困難群眾送去棉被、米麵等生活用品。

 


 

If this isn’t unconditional love there’s no love at all.

Source: This Man Has Been Taking Care of His Paralyzed Wife for 56 Years — THIS Is True Love

This faithful husband has spent 56 years taking care of his paralyzed wife, Zhou Yu’ai, and continues to love her no matter what.

We at Bright Side believe that true love really exists, and the story of Chinese farmer Du Yuanfa proves it without a shadow of a doubt.

Du and Zhou got married in 1959, but just five months after their wedding fate dealt them a cruel blow. The young wife was struck by a mysterious disease at the age of 20 and became completely paralyzed. At the time, Du was working in a coal mine in the nearby city and found out about the tragic event only after he had received a letter from his family informing him that Zhou was sick and bed-bound.

Du immediately took a long leave from work and returned home. Due to the illness, Zhou lost all sensation in her body. She could not even turn or hold objects in her hands. No doctor could figure out what was wrong with the young woman. And then, to make matters worse, the young couple found out that Zhou lost the ability to reproduce.

A lot of Du’s friends suggested that he annul his marriage and start a new life, but the loving man refused. He told his wife, “Don’t worry. I will care for you forever,” and kept his word.

Du quit his job and devoted all his time to caring for his wife. The loving husband, who also works as a farmer, spoon-feeds his wife, changes her bedpans, prepares traditional Chinese medicines, and takes her to different doctors.

Du’s dedication couldn’t go unnoticed by his neighbors who often come to visit the old couple and bring them life necessities, groceries, and medicines. Moreover, Du and Zhou also receive help from the local authorities.

Du has never given up. For nearly six decades he has been taking care of his beloved wife. Every day, the man cleans, feeds, and massages his wife and still hopes to find treatment for her disease. Perhaps this is what true love looks like.
