Disabled Woman That Cooks And Shaves Her Husband's Hair With Her Feet [Photo]

Meet the 70-year-old Chinese man and his wonderful wife who loves him so much she shave his head with her feet in Heyuan, in north-western China’s Ningxia Hui autonomous region.

Bai Aixiang is a master of all trades, she cooks, washes, embroiders, and even shaves her husband’s head with her feet. She contracted polio at the age of 12 which left her hands permanently deformed
while a later disease robbed her of what little use she had left.

Nevertheless she did not give up and taught herself how to use her feet to carry out day-to-day activities. Speaking about her disability the woman said, “I learned to do many of the things an able-bodied person would do.

I knew that one day my parents would not be around for me and in any case even as a young girl I managed to learn a lot of stuff just by using my feet. I can cook, I can even do needlework or wash clothes or whatever. Shaving my husband’s head is really quite easy in comparison with sewing.”

What concerns her husband, the woman was introduced to widower Ma when she was 33 and he was 54. The man immediately fell in love with her and asked her to marry him despite the 21-year-age difference.

Bai is well-known in the village for her capabilities. She not only maintains her family in a good order, but also helps local poor and disabled people to make clothes and do home chores. She is a real inspiration for many!
