As the woman struggled with her cart, “out of a sudden, all these children together helped her to push,” the caption noted.

“Very beautiful to see how pure the children’s heart is. Kudos to this lady who had led the kids.”

At one point, one of the boys placed his hand out towards a fellow student to remind him to keep off the road.
