A group of ethnic minorities made 72 paintings in Xiepu town in Zhenhai district, Ningbo, East China's Zhejiang province on Sept 27 in celebration of the 72nd anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

With the approach of National Day, more than 20 ethnic minority migrant workers in Ningbo participated in the activity to wish the best for the nation through 72 farmer paintings, a popular school of painting developed by Chinese farmers.

Song Qiuju, a woman of the Yao ethnic group from Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, has been working in Xiepu town since 2008 and is also a fan of farmer paintings. Song's painting, entitled "Motherland in My Heart", captured the colors of Yao costumes.

Zhang Lanhua, a migrant worker of the Wa ethnic group who has witnessed great changes in Zhenhai district, chose "Struggle and Development" as the theme of her painting.

"Everyone can feel the strength of China, and we are all proud of our nation," Zhang said.

Most participants in the activity are residents of Guangyuan Community in Xiepu town. The community has been making strong efforts to better serve the ethnic minority migrant workers in employment, education, healthcare, legal matter and daily life.
