The Heng'ai Action, established in 2005, appealed to the public through the medium of women's federations and foundations in various regions, to knit sweaters for disabled children and orphans. More than 600,000 children have received home-knitted sweaters from loving parents in 30 or more provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions. 

The national launch of the 2011 Heng'ai Action started on September 26 in Yan'an, northwest China's Shaanxi Province.

Tianjin Women and Children's Foundation has collected around 200,000 yuan ($31,480) and donated about 20,000 sweaters to 20,000 children. 

The Hengyuanxiang Group has committed to a donation of 500 kilograms of wool this year. The focus of Tianjin Women's Federation and the Tianjin Women and Children's Foundation this year is on helping disabled children and orphans in Tianjin, especially in its old revolutionary areas.

There are 1,163 orphans and 5,174 disabled children below the age of 14 living in Tianjin, among whom 97 orphans and 461 disabled children are resident in the old revolutionary area of Ji County.
