A nursery in the city of Jinjiang, southeast China’s Fujian Province, is currently looking after 24 children who were rescued by local police from human traffickers or baby snatchers.

The stories and photos of the parentless children were aired on China Central Television (CCTV) on January 1, and their DNA has been registered in the national database of abductees.

However, no matches have been found so far.

The youngsters stay in different dorms in the nursery based on their age. Meanwhile, they are looked after by childcare workers.

Jinjiang police are working hard to locate the biological parents of the children, and have volunteered to be their temporary guardians by talking to them regularly and giving them lessons.

The nursery hopes more people can join their efforts and help pass on information to find the parents, or offer to adopt the children themselves, so that they can get the care of a proper family as soon as possible.
