That is a big "why".

Assuming your observation is correct.

-Other man's grass is always greener?

-It is a long Chinese tradition that hosts are supposed to treat their guest better than their own family members?

-Want to show their utmost hospitality to their guests?

-Regard foreigners need more helps than their compatriots?

-Foreigners have a more lovable face than their compatriots?

-Helping Foreigners is more fun?

-Add a new experience to their routine existence?

-Chinese people have been helping their compatriots for centuries....so they decided to help some foreigners for a change?

-Foreigners are cute?

-Foreigners don't take help for granted?

-Some foreigners have blue eyes and blond hair?

-Fun to speak to a foreigners?

-Clear indication that there is individual freedom....that is.... to choose who you want to help?

-Foreigners smile a lot?

-It is fashionable for Chinese people to build bridges with foreigners?

-Foreigners are not as common beings as their compatriots?...novelty is the factor?

-Chinese people are interested in foreigners more than their compatriots?

-Foreigners are interested in Chinese people as long as the hosts do not overloaded them...so they are eager  to accept help from Chinese hosts?

-Chinese people might think ..."poor guy...can't speak our language...or not as good as us anyway...hardly can read Chinese...if we don't help...who is going to help them....beside they are our guests....Chinese people have an old saying "friends come from afar...and we are so happy about their visit"...so it is our duties to help out those foreigners!"?

As to the absolute "real" reason(s) for your question...I hope you can figure that out with absolute precision in your life time!

strange enough

Maybe foreigners are strangers to people, who may assume they are not familiar with the new circumstance, so help a lot. Compatriots ar e same as them, so they think they need no help at all.
One thing that's truly hard to eradicate is the idea.

Because we say ''Thank You'' a lot. :)

And that makes us crazy

Chinese people believe that crazy people need all the help they can get.

Chinese people are nice like that.
(mostly harmless)
