July 30 noon, two naked girls around 10-years-old played on the balcony of a residential building. This residential building has a total of eight floors, and the two girls were located on the top floor. Observed from the outside, the balcony was piled full of waste paper, plastic, and other discarded or old items. The girls’ environment was extremely bad.
According to a worker of a certain home appliances store nearby, they also in inadvertently discovered these two girls naked on the balcony, and for quite some time already. Through interviews with people nearby, it is known that this floor of the residential building belongs to the City Housing Authority as a low-cost rental housing for the government. The household living on this level is surname Liu, and have lived here for over 10 years. The male head of household’s leg is crippled, and he works outside. Because this family is rarely seen coming out during the day, the surrounding residents feel they are very mysterious and unfamiliar. An auntie said she previously has seen the female head of household with the two girls leaving carrying snake skin bags after two in the morning and has also see them returning after five in the morning carrying discarded trash.
Look at these two very young girls’ bare bodies, climbing amongst the trash piles on the eighth floor balcony, and if there were a slip or a fall, the consequences would be worrying. Who knows just what these girls’ homes look like?!
Some of the photographs are from Chinese netizens who went to help clean up and donate clothes and food the next day. More information and pictures of the family and kind netizens on NetEase:

Comments from Mop:
I hope they can have a better life!!!
Is there something we can do?
I hope to donate a little money…
LZ, let us get in touch.
So pitiful, and the children are so cute. Ding.
This is an example of people who are really living at the bottom level of society, seeing them makes one speechless.
Seeing this my heart is sad.
I feel helpless, but I too can do nothing. I am not a go-vern-ment official, nor a philanthropist, no money, no position/power, so I can only get soy sauce.
Let’s think of something, everyone together donate a little money, with many people our strength is big. I hope we can at least help a little.
China’s go-vern-ment, do not take our taxpayers’ money to go vacationing abroad, eat dinner, and related corrupt things. It is time for you to pay attention to the people’s lives.
Sorry, lou zhu, I cannot help. I believe this matter should be taken care of by the country.
LZ, apart from the good intention of helping others, please add mosaics to the original pictures. I hope that helping will not become a disservice, because what they need is not just material help, but even more so What they need are not only material help, but also mental/spiritual care even though they are still small and at this very moment do not understand what significance these photographs may have to them. I appreciate the people who are helping them and at the same time earnestly request that you guys be a bit more careful, and have a bit more humanized care.
Sigh, in China the poor are really getting more poor, the rich even more rich.
Truly saddening. All I can do is ding this post up, so those people who have more ability can see and extend a helping hand, and at the same time cause the relevant go-vern-ment departments to pay attention, attach importance, and do some practical things for the development of the ordinary common people’s lives.
In China, this kind of circumstances are too many, and compared to some places, it can be said that at least they can get by.
