Young Chinese woman dies after suffering hunger to help her brother live

A 24-year-old Chinese female student has died after years of suffering hunger to help her brother secure the medicines that he needed for his survival.

Wu Huayan passed away after her heart and kidneys failed to function after her lengthy diet of eating just rice and pepper.

When she died she only weighed 20 kilos. It was stated she was surviving on 30 US cents daily.

The case of Wu Huayan reverberated shock throughout China and served to highlight the great problem of poverty although the country is undergoing economic growth.
