Disabled girl Yuanyuan regains health in Taiyuan   2012-11-26 08:11:00


  Yuanyuan drinks milk in a ward in Taiyuan, capital of north China's Shanxi Province, March 29, 2012. Fourteen years ago, abandoned baby Yuanyuan was adopted by a 60-year-old junkman, Chen Xilun. With the money earned by collecting rubbish, Chen raised the girl up but cannot afford the treatment for her congenital body deformity. In February, 2012, the story of the poor family spread widely through the Internet and touched numerous netizens and social charities. A hospital in Taiyuan decided to cure Yuanyuan's disabilities free of charge. Thanks to the help from warm-hearted people all over China, the surgery reached a full success. By now, she has regained health and returned to school like a normal child. (Xinhua/Yan Yan)
