88-year-old Chinese Woman Saves 30 Infants Abandoned on the Street

Posted on August 11, 2012

A woman in China managed to save 30 children who were abandoned and living on the streets.

Xiaoying Lou, 88, lives in Jinhua, in China’s eastern Zhejiang province, where she recycled garbage for a living. She and her late husband, Zin Li, who passed away 17 years ago, kept four of the children and let friends and other family members take care of the rest.

“The whole thing started when I found the first baby, a little girl back in 1972, when I was out collecting garbage. She was just lying among the junk on the street, abandoned. She would have died had we not rescued her and taken her in,” said Ms. Lou. “Watching her grow and become stronger gave us such happiness, and I realized I had a real love of caring for children.”

Qilin Zhang, her youngest child, is now seven. Lou found him in a dumpster.

“Even though I was already getting old, I could not simply ignore the baby and leave him to die in the trash. He looked so sweet and so needy. I had to take him home with me,” she said.

Caiying Zhang, her only biological daughter, now looks after the abandoned babies.

Xiaoying Lou is now suffering from kidney failure.

People in USA also throw their infants in the trash and we are a completely different culture.

The kidney failure has nothing to do with her effort to save children - accept that she has a passion for protecting the innocence off children.

The Nobel Piece Prize is for those individuals who had an influence between nations. This woman is only taking in babies off of the Chinese streets. If she was doing what mother Teresa did by going to other countries and helping children, then she could be considered for the peace prize.

NO, I disagree - she has done something that had an impact on society - the Nobel Peace prize is given to those who have done nothing....
