Elderly Woman In China Rescues 30 Abandoned Babies From The Trash, Gives Them All A Chance At Life
January 5, 2014
Lou Xiaoying has saved the lives of 30 abandoned babies since 1972. Making her living collecting rubbish and recycling her findings, the 88 year-old unfortunately came across many babies left for dead.
She kept four of the children and passed the rest on to close family members and friends. Her youngest son Zhang Qilin - now aged just seven - was found in a dustbin when she was 82.
"Even though I was already getting old I could not simply ignore the baby and leave him to die in the trash...I took him back to our home, which is a very small modest house in the countryside and nursed him to health. He is now a thriving little boy, who is happy and healthy."

It all started in 1972 when she found the first little girl left to die in the trash. Lying there with no hope to survive, she took her home and raised her as one of her own.
"Watching her grow and become stronger gave us such happiness and I realized I had a real love of caring for children," said Xiaoying.
Even though she could not afford it, she managed to find a way and saved these children's lives, one by one.
