Bao presented them with 5,000 yuan (US$ 803.5) to help ease their financial burdens.

Li was diagnosed with chronic renal failure (CRF) in early 2010, just two months after she got married. Their attempts to restore her to health landed her parents and husband in 100,000 yuan (US$ 16,060) worth of debts.

Despite their efforts, Li developed acute renal failure (ARF) this July and Ma decided to donate part of her kidney to her. The family struggled to raise nearly 200,000 yuan (US$ 32,140) needed for the medical operation.

Meanwhile, the local government and public also contributed their efforts to helping Ma and Li.

Both mother and daughter are recovering well from surgery.
