Yu Fuling, born in November 1956, is secretary of the Party committee of Huachuan Community in Baizhang Street, Jiangdong District, Ningbo in east China's Zhejiang Province.

Working in her local area for more than a decade, she is known for having invented the "365 working method" for communities, and always providing a convenient service for residents. Thus, she has earned herself the nickname "Prime Minister of the Lane".

Over the past years, Yu has gotten used to walking around the community every morning, whether it be windy or rainy, bitterly cold or in torrid heat. She always gets to know about the latest situations and listen to the ideas and thoughts of the residents.

Yu has made more than 40 diaries on the community up till now. In order to solve the issue of property management, she suggested integrating the roles of the community, landlord representatives and the property companies to better serve residents. 

Yu takes every resident in the community as her family, giving them her utmost assiduous and thoughtful care, according to those who know her.

To create jobs for laid-off workers in the community, she established a club to offer tailor-made services according to individuals' different situations and demands. Now, more than 200 people have found jobs and the employment rate has risen to 99.7 percent.

In addition, Yu also shows special concern for the disabled. A resident called Junjun has suffered from autism for more than 20 years and sometimes can not look after himself. She spent time every day talking to him. Her hard work paid off: Junjun uttered "aunt" in front of her and she burst into tears of joy.

During a typhoon season, she held fast to her position for six days and nights to help fight the flood and provide relief. Due to fatigue, she lost her voice for a short while afterward.

Yu has won the honorary titles of National Party Worker, Woman Red Banner Pace-setter of Zhejiang Province, and Excellent Community Worker of Zhejiang. She was elected a delegate of the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in 2012.
