Chinese foundation to help poor pupils along Belt and Road

A leading Chinese foundation plans to give about 200,000 aid packages to primary school students in countries along the Belt and Road in 2019, the foundation’s official said Tuesday.

The “care package” is a project carried out by China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation since 2009, providing stationary, textbooks and other everyday items to primary schools in poor rural areas.

Yan Zhitao, deputy secretary-general of the foundation, said the project started reaching out to foreign recipients last year and would expand this year to help overseas pupils in need.

Over the past decade, the care package project has collected donations amounting to 700 million yuan (101 million U.S. dollars) and aided more than 6 million pupils in China.
