Zhao Huayu was born in May, 1972 in Huixian County of Hainan Province. He joined the Communist Party of China in May 1994 and started work in August, 1994. He had a postgraduate degree. He was a Police Supervisor Class II.

He studied at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Chongqing University from September 1990 to August 1994 and worked at Xinxiang Chemical Fiber Factory in Henan Province after graduation. He returned to school between September 1996 and July 1999 at the Graduate Department of Southwest University of Political Science and Law.

He worked in the Ministry of Public Security after graduation. He first worked at the Government Procurement Office of Equipment Finance Department and was then promoted to vice director of the office and deputy chief of Government Procurement Bureau.

After his son was born, his wife quit her job in her hometown and moved to Beijing. Zhao and his family lived together for just three years before he was sent to Haiti.

Zhao worked for the Haiti peacekeeping cause from June 2004 while based in China, when the Ministry of Public Security first sent a peacekeeping police team to Haiti. As the vice director of Government Procurement Office, he worked days and nights to sort out the equipment list for the team and because of overworking, he fell unconscious in the office.

From March 2007 to April 2009, he took a temporary post as vice director of Xiaonan Division at Xiaogan Public Security Bureau of Hubei Province.

On September 25, 2009, Zhao Huayu led China's seventh Haiti peacekeeping police team in Haiti. He suffered from Dengge fever 20 days after he got there. He recorded his condition in his diary, "after many days' high fever and pain, my mouth and eyes began to bleed and my hands, legs and feet also had subcutaneous bleeding".

After 10 days' fighting the disease, he was authorized to leave the hospital. Every time he talked to his family on the phone, he always said he missed his son greatly.

Zhao was extremely careful about state property. He made precise calculations and strict budgeting. He was honest and clean in procurement. He told his colleagues to choose goods which were not necessarily the most expensive but cheap ones with good quality.
