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.

 

Lou Xiaoying is now dying from kidney failure.

 

An impoverished Chinese grandmother is being hailed as a hero after rescuing more than 30 newborn babies that she found dumped in trash cans while scavenging to make a living.

Lou Xiaoying, now 88 and suffering kidney failure, spent the past 40 years saving abandoned infants from the streets of Jinhua, the Huffington Post reports.

Mrs Xiaoying, who has one biological daughter, raised four of the children with her late husband Lin Zin and gave the others to family and friends.

She found her first baby while collecting rubbish in 1972 and adopted her last child Qiling, a little boy she found in a dumpster, when she was 82.

 

Lou Xiaoying is pictured with one of the children she helped rescued.

Lou Xiaoying, who is now in hospital, has become iconic in her village and people have said she puts the government and other officials to shame

 

"Even though I was already getting old I could not simply ignore the baby and leave him to die in the trash," Mrs Xiaoying said.

Her adopted daughter Zhang Juju, 33, said her mother always tried to give her children the best lives possible despite her extreme poverty.

 

A little boy who was found abandoned by Lou is now cared for by her older children. The family have little money but still managed to save dozens of children

 

Lou Xiaoying made a living from collecting and recycling rubbish, she said that she would never leave the children after coming across them, abandoned

 

Now that the 88-year-old is confined to a hospital bed, too sick to move or speak, people in her community have come forward to help support her and continue her life's mission.

A fundraising website has been set up to pay for her hospital bills and a local school has stepped forward to realise her dying wish that her youngest child Qiling receive an education.
