China on Sunday marks its National Day of Assisting Persons with Disabilities. This year focuses on orphaned and disabled children. The chairperson of the China Disabled Persons’ Federation (CDPF), Zhang Haidi, has called on society to provide more care for these children. According to the CDPF, 200,000 children in China are either born with a disability or become disabled before the age of six each year. There are 520,000 orphans nationwide, among which disabled children often require extra care. In 2015, the central government allocated 2.2 billion yuan for the care and support of these orphans. Currently, parentless children raised in national organizations receive a subsidy of 1,350 yuan per person per month.
