Tough Broads – Lou Xiaoying

Lou Xiaoying, of Jinhua , China, made her living by rummaging through the trash bins for anything recyclable, usable, or worth selling.


She was going about her daily garbage run one day in 1972, when she came across a tiny baby girl who had been thrown out among the heaps of trash. Lou took the child home and raised her as her own.


That little girl was the first of 33 babies that Lou drug from the trash, nursed back to health and gave a future. Four of those children she raised with her own very modest means, the rest she was able to place in loving homes.


Lou says, “how could [I] not recycle something as important as human lives?”
