Daily Mail: Lou Xiaoying, now 88 and suffering from kidney failure, found and raised more than 30 abandoned Chinese babies from the streets of Jinhua, in the eastern Zhejiang province where she managed to make a living by recycling rubbish. She and her late husband Li Zin, who died 17 years ago, kept four of the children and passed the others onto friends and family to start new lives.
'I realised if we had strength enough to collect garbage how could we not recycle something as important as human lives,' she explained. 'These children need love and care. They are all precious human lives. I do not understand how people can leave such a vulnerable baby on the streets."
