On June 1, the 10th “China Charity Award” candidate list was announced. Our Foundation has two projects included in this list: “Sunshine Walking Assistance” that our Foundation donates to cooperate with Inner Mongolia Disabled Person’s Federation and Rehabilitation Service Center; and Inner Mongolian “Walking Towards Brightness” charitable activity that our Foundation cooperates with Red Cross Society of China Inner Mongolia Branch and Inner Mongolia Society for Promotion of the Guangcai Program. And a seven-day (natural day) open online voting has started.
Sunshine Walking Assistance
In order to help people with lower limb disability in Inner Mongolia to achieve their goals of “standing up and going out”, our Foundation made accumulative donation of RMB 6 million, and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region allocated RMB 6 million in equal funds from 2013 to 2017 to carry out “Sunshine Walking Assistance” in the region with the organization and coordination of Inner Mongolia Disabled Person’s Federation and Inner Mongolia Rehabilitation Service Center, providing free prosthetic limb assembly for nearly 3,000 people with lower limb disability in Inner Mongolia. This has basically achieved the goal of helping all physically handicapped in the region to “stand up”.
“Walking Towards Brightness” charitable activity for the region
In 2015, Lao Niu Foundation cooperated with Red Cross Society of China Inner Mongolia Branch, Society for Promotion of the Guangcai Program, and Foundation for Poverty Alleviation to initiate “Walking Towards Brightness” charitable activity to carry out Treatment for Patients with Cataracts (Phase II). From the start of June 2015 to the end of 2017, this project has conducted free sight rehabilitating surgeries for 15,840 poverty-stricken cataract patients in the region, exceeding the target of 10,000 surgeries. And the success rate has reached 100%.
In May 2018, the third phase of this project has officially started. In the next four years, it will bring brightness to 10,000 poverty-stricken cataract patients in the region and carry out “eye-protection action” for caring for adolescents’ eye health.
