Eleven disadvantaged mothers from Shigatse, a city in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, have received postal parcels filled with daily necessities in conjunction with the upcoming Spring Festival which falls on February 10, 2013.
The Shigatse Women's Federation has also gathered information on local impoverished women recently and reported it to higher authorities to seek more help for them.
Jointly launched by the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) and China Women's Development Foundation (CWDF) in May 2012, the Postal Parcel for Mothers charity project features transparent and convenient participation. Donors can purchase parcels containing 100 or 200 yuan (US$ 15.89 or 31.78) worth of basic necessities, such as washing powder and towels, through several channels, including post offices, the CWDF website, Internet service portal Tencent's charity channel and the Alipay online payment platform, to help mothers in poverty-stricken areas. In response, the donors will receive thank-you cards from the beneficiaries.
