Hosany Sumayyah, a Mauritian surgeon, and her fiancé Pakistani orthopedist Abdul Zahir Hamad, have over the past two years served as volunteers in the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic in Wenzhou, East China's Zhejiang province.

As the couple were not able to travel home to Mauritius for their wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospitable She ethnic minority people from the mountainous Cangnan county held a distinctive minority-style wedding for them last December.

The wedding, which was livestreamed and uploaded online, received the blessings of over 5 million viewers from across the world.

Hosany Sumayyah and Abdul Zahir Hamad are both doctors at the local Panhealth Medical Center who love sharing about their lives in China on overseas social media platforms.
