Chinese Netizens Organize To Identify & Rescue Child Beggars

Chinese netizens rally on microblogs posting photos of child beggars and suspected abducted children.

From Sohu:

“Photograph and Rescue Child Beggars” began with one mother asking for help finding her son

Photos of children uploaded

Recently, as long as you were on weibo [microblog] following the “Photograph and Rescue Child Beggars” official microblog account set up by Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Rural Development professor Yu Jianrong, you would have seen a long list of updates from this microblog every day you opened your weibo, with all of them being photos and information of child beggars on the streets posted by netizens throughout the country. According to this reporter’s rough calculations, amongst the photos and information of child beggars uploaded, there are a total of 50 child beggars from the Guangzhou area.

Searching for son information attracts netizen’s attention

Yesterday, Yu Jianrong expressed on a telephone interview with this reporter that “Photograph and Rescue Child Beggars” was first started because on January 17th, a mother asked him to help her by posting a microblog message searching for her missing child Yang Weixin. After posting the weibo message, it immediately attracted the attention of netizens, with one netizen claiming to have seen a child that resembled Yang Weixin begging in Xiamen at the beginning of 2010, even uploading a photo of the child begging. Afterward, the child’s family immediately rushed to Xiamen to search for the child’s whereabouts.

Yu Jianrong said: “After this, many netizens asked me to help post information about searches for children. So I created a dedicated ‘Photograph and Rescue Child Beggars’ weibo. I hope that through the power of netizens, mothers who have lost their children can find hope in this weibo.

On February 3rd, Professor Yu Jianrong posted on his Sina Weibo microblog account the following image, a collection of the photographs of child beggars and missing children submitted to him by Chinese netizens, including a graph at the bottom showing in which cities many of the photographs were taken. Along with this image was a status update by Yu Jianrong that reads:

[Photograph and Rescue Child Beggars] Developments 2: 1. Seven days after beginning, a total of 415 child beggar photographs have been received; 2. There have been parents who have recognized their children [in the photographs]; 3. The Public Security Bureau has placed a high level of attention [to this effort] and have dispatched police many times; 4. CCTV, Guangdong, and other media have reported [on our efforts]; 5. [Jet Li’s] One Foundation has expressed that they will financially aid in the development of a database and netizen rescue effort system. Please continue to gei li [do your best, impress everyone with your efforts].

From NetEase:

Netizens around the country take photos on the streets to rescue child beggars

A weibo [microblog] campaign against suspected child trafficking and to rescue child beggars started by Chinese Academy of the Social Sciences professor Yu Jianrong began on January 25th, appealing to microblog netizens to take and upload photos of child beggars they encounter on the streets, urging the police to take action, and within a short two weeks, nearly a thousand photographs have already been uploaded by netizens.

The Public Security Bureau's anti-trafficking department director Chen Shiqu has also expressed support on the microblog, even contacting the police departments of various places to pay attention to it. Some National People's Congress representatives have also stated that they will raise the issue during the Two Meetings this years. Various public security organs are paying attention in support. Photo is of a child beggar in Shenzhen.

This girl was seen in Panzhou Park in Gaozhou City of Guangdong, wearing ethnic minority clothes, with the paper on the ground probably saying how her mother has some kind of illness, and how she has no money for treatment. However, what isn't logical is that the speaker system she is using to sell songs appears to be very good/expensive!

Comments from QQ:

腾讯佳木斯市网友:

The state should establish severe punishments to crack down upon human traffickers including sentencing human traffickers to death to bring peace and security to all the children in the world.

腾讯上海市网友:

Ignorant people will always be ignorant. Why can’t the police can’t detain child beggars and their companions/handlers when they see them and use DNA tests to ascertain the truth? Why waste time messing around with these weibo (I suspect person behind the weibo [Yu Jiangrong] just wants to become famous)? I really don’t understand why the state is this indifferent towards the phenomenon of child beggars.

腾讯铜仁地区网友:

Yeah, even netizens have begun taking action, but the government, just being a bunch of “qualified” cadres swinging their arms back and forth doing nothing, because sitting on the toilet without shitting is their specialty.

腾讯江门市网友:

Ever since the government got rid of death sentences for corrupt officials and human trafficking, China became a black society [a criminal underworld, a world of organized crime].

腾讯网友:

Today I too saw a woman with a child begging on the pedestrian overpass at the intersection of Cangbian Road and Dongfeng Road, the child sleeping on the overpass, probably only two or three years old, I couldn’t see the child’s face clearly. At the time, I even scolded the woman for allowing her child to suffer with her for her failure in life, but I didn’t imagine that the child could have been abducted. Now that I think about it, those heartless human traffickers should really be run over by cars, being so cruel, how could they do it, to those innocent children? From this day forward, I too will join this group of rescuing abducted children, take photos, post them onto weibo, so those children separated [from their parents] may return home soon.

腾讯阜阳市网友:

Human traffickers and their families should all die! Too despicable, I feel sad just thinking about those abducted children, the parents suffering even more each day, the state should heavily punish human traffickers! Make it so they will never have the guts to abduct children again!

腾讯网友:

Let us do what we can on weibo, working together. For the children, for the love of human nature.

腾讯深圳市网友:

These human traffickers should be shot, how can those who also have children of their own be so cruel…hope those abducted children can return home soon…

腾讯绍兴市网友:

Look at how developed countries don’t have the death penalty and yet they’re still more “harmonious” than China.
Torture doesn’t solve everything. It was because the Tang Dynasty governed with benevolence and righteousness than people worshiped/admired it.

腾讯网友:

Ding this up. Having the thought itself is a good thing.

腾讯唐山市网友:

Should we complain? Or should we go do something? Though there are some things in the world that are very difficult to change, as long as we contribute our own strength, no matter how difficult it is there is still a possibility.

腾讯北京市网友:

So sad. The strength of us ordinary common people is too small, though we care and our hearts ache. Hope the government will do something, that those who abduct children be sentenced to death. Then let’s see who dares to traffic children.

腾讯东莞市网友:

The question is why did 2 years have to pass before everyone learned about it.

腾讯中山市网友:

The country has 10 trillion in fiscal revenues a year, and yet several children can’t be rescued. Where is the blood and sweat money of the ordinary common people going? No wonder America is so arrogant!!!!!!!!!!!!!

腾讯梧州市网友:

I truly, truly very much want to help them, as every one of them should have a better tomorrow!

On Youku:

Youku "Rang Bao Bei Hui Jia" special page.

Popular Chinese video sharing website Youku today unveiled on their homepage a special “So Our Babies Can Go Home” page dedicated to videos of child beggars filmed by netizens around the country. A map on the page shows where various videos were recorded:

    Funny the government seems to shut up parents trying to organize and the police as well as the government seem not interested AT ALL in doing anything other than token measures to tackle the problem.

    • Tommy

      When did the government try to shut up parents who are organizing to rescue children?

      I know they put a man who was distributing information about tainted milk in jail. I also know they destroyed computers with information about how many people died in the earthquake.

      The anger I see in the average Chinese person towards the government is really scary. It reminds me of when I was in Egypt a few years ago.

  • Billy

    You see them everywhere. Here in Henan for sure.

  • dirtywhiteboy

    damn I really feel bad for the children in these photos. one of my teachers in China told me the best you can do for them is buy them some food instead of giving them money, because the child beggars are usually being exploited by other people

    • xmcx

      But those people will hit and/or rape them if they don’t bring back enough money at the end of the day, you know. So it’s not as obvious as just “give them food”.

  • http://www.lovelovechina.com Crystal

    Truly noble effort.

    I just wonder if there are many children who were sold to those gangs by their own parents.

  • Cool Matt

    The danger of all of this is if or when the people see the children they are exploiting on the internet, the kids might disappear forever. They already break limbs, why would they stop there if need be?

    • Sunni

      I would have to agree with you on this unfortunate claim… A horrifying thought, but definitely possible…

      Nothing else I can but pray for these children.

  • Alikese

    http://www.shanghaidaily.com/article/?id=463285
    Apparently nobody has been caught through this campaign yet.

    Of course you hope that it works and will make a dent in the human trafficking problem, but I have to imagine that a decent number of these are just dirt-poor families coming in from the countryside because they don’t have enough money to survive.

    In the end I imagine that this weibo campaign will do more to make the netizens feel good about themselves than it will help abducted children.

    • nufio

      exactly what I thought.
      Its no secret that young yuppies like to take a loooot of photos. This just serves as an avenue for these people to feel good about themselves doing something they like doing.

      I am not saying they dont feel any sympathy towards children being exploited, just not enough to affect them to really do something about it besides taking photographs.

      I have no idea about the statistics but among the children who are begging the % that are from genuinely poor families and forced to beg I imagine would be high. Or one could just spend one day watching a child beggar and see if he/she goes back to the family. I would suspect most do. But dealing with poverty does need more than taking a photograph.

      • Justin

        “But dealing with poverty does need more than taking a photograph.”

        I suppose people could do something even less constructive, such as bitching on ChinaSmack about it.

  • Eu

    In early 90s there was a few years of “strike hard” (yan da) campaigns against human trafficking of children and women. Those who got caught got the death penalty automatically. Even those who “bought” children and women got harsh sentences. The death scare seemed to work for a while. Then it started all over again with the huge population migration.
    In some parts, even when police come in to rescue, the police can’t even fight them off! And they just disappear again.

    A cynical part of me also believes some children are sold by their parents (especially the girls). Looking at the missing children’s photos in their play clothes or school uniforms really break my heart.

  • Pong Lenis

    I may take pix on my China trips and will post them there. Certainly a good cause!

  • Pingback: ⇒ China und die USA • Politik & Gesellschaft()

  • MadeInChina

    They should pluck all the kids of the streets and maybe do a dna match for those parents who do come looking for their kids.
    Those who do come and aren’t what they seem, are to be taken too the back room and shot on site.
    So now they’re doing 2 noble things.

      Also, FAUNA: You should add to your post that foreigners should also participate in this moment, and take pics of children they see begging. If they don’t have weibo or can’t write in Chinese, they can send photos and info to me or to @niubi on Twitter and we will translate them and send them to Yu Jianrong. Thanks!

  • Wondering

    I gave money to one of these beggars with a child. Now, I feel terrible and hope the child wasn’t kidnapped. The child was so quiet, I thought it had to be drugged, but I never thought it might not be hers. Poor kids out in the cold.

    • Dawei

      Don’t be too hard on yourself for common human charity. The thing is if no one gave them any money then this would disappear over night. This would harm the genuine cases but probably justified given the horror of child abduction, slavery and mutilation.

      One trick I saw was a mother with her baby eating food out of a bin. I was just about to give her some cash when my wife pointed out that this is a new trick. Sure enouph the “food” she was eating was a nice clean pile of rice place on the edge of the bin. After that I saw this everywhere.

    安徽太和公布利用残疾儿童行乞细节:2万买童
    2011年02月10日06:00人民网贾玥我要评论(128) 字号:T|T
    人民网北京2月9日电 (记者 贾玥)在对媒体曝光的拐卖、虐待、组织儿童乞讨事件展开拉网式排查近3天后,安徽阜阳太和县委宣传部9日向人民网记者透露,目前已侦破案件两起,打击处理利用残疾儿童乞讨违法犯罪人员5人,其中刑事拘留1人,治安拘留4人。

    太和县官方提供的信息显示,目前侦破的两起案件同属夫妻合伙作案。

    据介绍,现年61岁的宫集镇集南村村民宫春风,2006年以4000元价格从马集乡西张村张庆林手中买下其养子——5岁残疾男童楠楠,从当年10月起伙同其妻随继荣长年带该男童在湖南岳阳、长沙、怀化等地乞讨。作为交易筹码,宫春风分5次付给张庆林现金共计2万元。

    另一对作案“夫妻档”宫保华与魏永琴均为宫集镇宫小村徐桥自然村人。2010年10月至11月期间,两人让抚养的15岁女童宫倩倩坐在自制的木质平板车上唱歌,沿上海、南京等地行乞。

    “目前宫春风已被刑事拘留,张庆林、随继荣被处治安拘留15日;对宫保华、魏永勤处以治安拘留15日、罚款1000元处罚。” 太和县委宣传部有关负责人表示。

    截至记者发稿时,太和县官方始终强调尚未发现有拐卖儿童集团和据点,以及以行乞为目的通过泼硫酸、用刀致残、关笼子等残害虐待儿童现象。2月7日,宫集镇政府曾下发通告,敦促组织、携带残疾儿童外出乞讨的人在10日内自首;在另一份《规劝返乡接受调查一封信》中,要求未有上述违法犯罪的外出人员应及时配合公安机关调查。

    但当记者致电宫集镇派出所所长徐晓辉了解最新进展时,他拒绝做出任何回应。

    早在2003年,《新民周刊》记者就率先披露了宫小村盛行利用残疾人外出行乞,并把这个村落称为“瘫子村”。尘封多年的宫小村租残童行乞“致富”一事之所以再掀狂澜,与目前正在微博上进行的一场“随手拍照解救乞讨儿童”活动无不关系。在中国社科院教授于建嵘的倡议下,目前该活动已经收到各地网友提交的千余张照片,并有4名家长在照片中发现了和自己孩子长相相似的乞讨儿童。

    • mankouzanghua

      so right now there are 4 parents who saw a child resembling theirs in the pictures. if anything comes of any of this please post back here.

      to me it seems the main obstacle will be getting the photos in front of the parents, most of whom presumably are not internet users.

  • katwright

    Kudos for the effort!
    Even if it is wont save all, it might save some.
    I dont understand something.Is there not an age when kids have to go to school? How come when the police sees these unfortunate beggars,they dont stop and ask why are you not in school? Is there no agency for that in China?

  • Of Canada

    You see lots of beggars in Toronto. but NEVER see children. Why? Because Child Protection Services will take those kids away immediately. If you can’t provide food and shelter for your kids. . then they deserve better parents. The chengguan should simply take these kids away to orphanages whenever they see them. From there they can get medical care and paperwork and go up for adoption. Nearly every Chinese is baby crazy and boy crazy. . so it drives me insane when they won’t adopt. . . So many americans end up adopting abandoned chinese baby’s . . even boys now! There should be big lines of barren parents waiting to adopt those kids in China and give them a chance for a better life.

    I thought perhaps they were abandoned but perhaps they were kidnapped i have no idea. but i hope some of their parents will be able to find them

  • Dan Danger

    Too bad the government here, or even private citizens, don’t take some of that surplus GDP and help the children of China. Why is there not free education here or medical programs for poor children? Why do photos of these pitiful children even exist? Are you telling me there is no law or police here to do something?

    China wants the world to be amazed by the Expo and places Pudong in Shanghai. But these images take all of that away. There may be some person who says “this happens in the west” too, but that is a person who has never been to the west or another American who hates his own country and loves to trash it.

    In the US all of these adults would be arrested and the children put in a social service program to help them in soem way. Maybe still their lives would be hard, but not like this. Disgusting.

    Thank you to the brave Chinese people who are fighting this. But the goverment needs to stop wasting money on stealth bombers to impress and indimidate the west and feed and house its own children!

    I have not read such dumb ass statements. I watch and have given money an food to these children. Only to see there parents close pointing out the next victim for them to beg from. I am sure some are in need but the most are just. Fucking LAZY. Get a shower and search for a job, I have lived in or traveled to many countrys. I see the same in all asian countrys not that they dont have money to inforce the laws by aresting these misfits. Arest the parents and put the children in state ran homes.

    Ever see the movie “Little Moth”??? it’s about a girl beggar and how she is bought, then used for money. Sad, but true in a sense. I lived five years in Guangzhou, and I saw some terrible examples of child beggars. The ones that may have actually been beggars with their real parents were the minority beggars. The women pretty much looked like their little charges, and they were from the poorest of provinces, Guizhou.
    I have a story on my blog http://www.chinasweat.blogspot.com on how me and a few expats made sure some beggar kids got food: http://bit.ly/14zadDr
