The three-year-old Chinese girl suffers from an undiagnosed condition which causes her feet to grow at an alarmingly rapid rate.
They are constantly swollen and heavy and make moving around for the child, who lives in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province of China, extremely difficult.
Her family are extremely poor, but are slowly raising funds to take the young girl to a doctor and ask for help with her medical condition.
Yu Yu’s grandfather is planning to take her to Beijing to see a doctor after collecting money by selling animals.
An X-ray that the family have of Yu Yu’s feet show they are malformed and curve outwards.
But for the moment the little girl is shoeless as she does not have any shoes which can fit her large feet.
