  90-year-old American lady donates money to E China native city  

  

 

    A 90-year-old lady from America who returned to her native China to live won a charity award in east China's Shandong province on Thursday.

    Eunice Brock, former dean of a children's hospital in Denver, Colorado, donated more than 300,000 yuan (38,462 U.S. dollars) of her savings to buy computers for schools in Liaocheng city, build roads and plant trees.

    Brock was born in China and spent her early days in China where her parents worked as Christian missionaries.

    She left China in 1930 but, after her husband passed away, returned to Shandong to live permanently in 1999. She lives in Liumiao village in Yanggu county, Liaocheng city.

    "Being able to come back to China and spend my last days here is wonderful for me", said Brock when she accepted the award on Thursday.

    Brock is the only foreigner to receive the award sponsored by Shandong Business Daily, Qilu TV Station and Bailing website.

    Wang Yuqing, Brock's translator, helps her in her daily life. Brock's two sons and two daughters support her and often fly to China to see her.
