Chinese policewoman helps quake effort by breastfeeding
As there are after shocks in earth Quakes I found 'after news of original news" the news being two weeks old. Anyway here is the story. Seeking something about a recent boom in Chinese milk consumption and demand, I found on a Malaysian blog how Jiang Xiaojuan, Jiangyou County Public Security Bureau in Sichuan, an ordinary civilian police, become a hero.
CHENGDU, China - A Chinese policewoman is contributing to the country’s massive earthquake relief effort in a very personal way -- by breastfeeding eight babies.
A newspaper in Chengdu, the capital of quake-hit Sichuan province, devoted a special page to the 29-year-old woman, calling her a “hero.”
The woman from the quake-ravaged town of Jiangyou has just had a child herself, the Western Urban Daily said.
She is nursing the children of three women who were left homeless by the quake and are too traumatised to give milk, as well as five orphans, the report said.
The babies who lost their parents have been put in an orphanage which does not have powdered milk, it said.
