Shanxi Villages In Literal Collapse, But Moving Is Pricey

Shanxi Villages In Literal Collapse, But Moving Is Pricey

For many Shanxi villages, all that’s left are hollowed grounds and sinkholes. Due homes collapsing, drinking water shortages, and devastation of arable land caused by long-term large-scale coal mining, many working-age adults have also one after another moved away. The number of villages facing such problems is in the thousands and the government already has plans to relocate the inhabitants of these “midair villages”. However, after deducting government subsidies, the people would still have to spend about 10,000 RMB of their own money to move.
