One day in 2000, Dr. Jim Garrow, executive director of the Bethune Institute’s popular Pink Pagoda schools in China, found his assistant weeping. The woman told him how her sister’s husband was insisting that the couple’s newborn daughter be smothered – to make way for a son under China’s one-child policy.
Garrow promised to help and was able to place the infant with an adoptive couple.
It didn’t take long for his success to become known, and his help to be sought; since then he’s spent millions of dollars of his own money to divert the trail of death that China creates with its limits on children.
To date, The Pink Pagoda, the organization that grew out of this, is credited with saving the lives of 45,000 Chinese girls.
