A single mother caught shoplifting for her sick child has received public donations of more than 300,000 yuan ($45,600 U.S dollars), after her arresting officer posted her story online recognizing her as not just a woman breaking the law but a woman in need.

According to newspaper Modern Express, Liu Jinjia, a divorced mother, was on May 31 caught shoplifting a drumstick and a children's book at a supermarket in Nanjing of east China's Jiangsu province- apparently as Children's Day gifts for her ill daughter.

She has two daughters, both of whom suffer from renal disease. Liu brought one of her daughters, who is 7 years old and suffers from severe symptoms, from their home in east China's Shandong province to Nanjing for treatment on May 25. But as a worker at a recovery station she could only manage to earn less than 50 yuan ($7.6 U.S dollars) a day. Most of her money is spent on her daughter's treatment, which costs more than 100 yuan ($15 U.S dollars) a day. The mother and daughter could only afford a two-square-meter room to sleep in at night.
