Subject: Fw: Chinese rubbish collector who saved and raised THIRTY babies abandoned at the roadside
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.
Her youngest son Zhang Qilin - now aged just seven - was found in a dustbin by Lou when she was 82. Lou, has one biological daughter, Zhang Caiying and now aged 49, devoted her life to looking after the abandoned babies.
'She is shaming to governments, schools and people who stand by and do nothing. She has no money or power but she saved children from death or worse.
