Uygur Woman and Her 20 Children with Cerebral Palsy
Zaore Guli and her big 'family' []

A Uygur woman named Zaore Guli established an education center for disabled children in Korla, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, where she has taken care of these children since 2012. Now, there are over 20 children with cerebral palsy in her center. 

Due to infertility, Zaore Guli adopted a girl in 2005. Soon after that, she found that the girl suffered from congenital cerebral palsy and could not walk upright. Although she and her husband spent almost all their property and energy trying to help their daughter, she still could not walk normally. In spite of that, she never gave up. With the love for her daughter, Zaore Guli began to pay more attention to children with cerebral palsy and their families. 

In order to alleviate the living pressures of parents whose children suffer from this disease, Zaore established the Korla Disabled Children's Education Center in 2012 and focused on taking care of children with cerebral palsy. 

After Zaore's story was aired on the Shandong Radio Television Station, a hospital located in Jinan, capital of east China's Shandong Province, decided to offer treatment to the children for free. Finally, two boys were selected to undergo surgery at the hospital. 

On the plane leaving for Jinan from Urumqi, many passengers were so touched by the story between Zaore Guli and these children that they donated enthusiastically. A total of more than 8,600 yuan (U.S. $1,384) was raised on the airplane. 

The operations started at 10:00 am on July 17, and two hours later, the operations were completed successfully.
