Tragically, Lou is suffering from kidney failure. Over the years, the brave woman found a whopping thirty babies at the side of the street – completely abandoned and left behind. Lou and her late husband Li Zing decided to do something about it and did something that was truly remarkable.

The couple made sure that each and every baby that they found would lead a happy life where they’d get all the chances they deserved. She and her husband kept four of the children she found at the roadside, while she carefully made sure that the other babies would be adopted by friends and family members for a fresh start.

What makes this even more special is that Lou found these babies at an older age. Lou found her youngest, Zhang Qilin, a seven-year-old boy when she was 82 years old.

“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.

“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.

My older children all help look after Zhang Qilin, he is very special to all of us. I named him after the Chinese word for rare and precious.

The whole thing started when I found the first baby, a little girl back in 1972 when I was out collecting rubbish. She was just lying amongst the junk on the street, abandoned. She would have died had we not rescued her and taken her in.

Watching her grow and become stronger gave us such happiness and I realized I had a real love of caring for children.

I realized 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.”

Aside from the many children she saved on the street, Lou also has a biological daughter. Now 49-years old, her daughter Zhang Caiying has devoted her life to continue looking after babies that were left behind in honor of her mother.

Lou - now 88 and suffering from kidney failure - found and raised more than 30 abandoned babies from the streets of Jinhua, in eastern Zhejiang province where she scraped a living recycling rubbish. She has her husband Li Zin - who died 17 years ago - kept four themselves and passed others on to friends and family to start new lives. Her youngest son Zhang Qilin - now aged just seven - was found as an hours old baby dumped in a trash bin. "If we had strength enough to collect garbage how could we not recycle something as important as human lives," she explained. Now Lou has become a symbol of kind-hearted charity in China, where thousands of babies are abandoned on the streets by their poverty stricken parents. One fan explained: "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."

Lou’s kidney failure is fatal, but she is happy knowing that she spread awareness and kindheartedness across China.

“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,” one supporting person wrote.
