China has lead a nationwide campaign to eradicate poverty, with the aim of lifting every Chinese citizen out of extreme poverty by 2021. This plan has included massive relocation of villagers, allowing many to access better schools, healthcare, and infrastructure. However, many of the relocated villagers do not want to have their family homes demolished. They also struggle to find new jobs in ordr to afford higher costs of living after relocation. 

Excerpt The CCP  has spent $20.6 billion in 2020 alone on poverty alleviation, topping an increase of $3 billion in anti-poverty spending each year.
