Two kind pensioners have sold their home and almost all their possessions to take care of an adopted child suffering from a lifetime illness.

Cai Zinan (76) and his wife Huang Lifen (72), from Jinjiang in China, have adopted seven-year-old Lele, who was abandoned by his biological parents after birth.

Lele was taken into care and later adopted by the selfless couple, who have vowed to do all they can for the tot who’s been diagnosed with hydrocephalus – a condition that’s characterised by excessive fluid on the brain.

Last year the elderly couple sold their family home and moved to a small flat to raise much-needed funds for treatment for the lad they’re raising as their own.

In order to help him get a stem cell transplant, which costs more than R4 million, Cai and Huang have tried to raise money through fundraisers.

Further treatments will be needed in coming years but the pensioners say they’ll dedicate their lives to raising funds in a bid to give their son “a normal life”.
