The little girl who can't wear shoes: Her feet are too big
The three-year-old suffers from an undiagnosed condition which causes her feet to grow at an alarmingly rapid rate.
They are constantly swollen and heavy and make moving around for the child, who lives in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province of China, extremely difficult.
Her family are extremely poor, but are slowly raising funds to take the young girl to a doctor and ask for help with her medical condition.
Yu Yu's grandfather is planning to take her to Beijing to see a doctor after collecting money by selling several pigs.
But for the moment the little girl is shoeless as she does not have any shoes which can fit her large feet.
