Over the years, Nguyen Van Duc and his 75-year-old wife, Pham Thi Tru, in Thanh Phu District have wholeheartedly taken care of Duc’s mother, Tran Thi Nguy, who was born in 1901.

Despite his senior age, Duc, Nguy’s youngest child, takes charge of most household chores, including working on the field and caring for his decrepit mother.

After tending to his mother, Nguyen Van Duc, 85, rides his bike to his paddy field, where he works until late afternoon.

At 85, Duc (right) remains fit enough to chop wood.
His daily routines include riding his bike to the local market for food, fetching herbal medicine, drying and preparing it for his family and neighbors to use, and even chopping wood.
