The sweaters had been knitted by volunteer mothers from the Xinjiang Mothers Mutual Help Society. The children expressed their gratitude to the volunteer mothers with simple words and wonderful performances.

The federation also awarded honorary certificates to the volunteers who have consistently participated in the Eternal Love Action.

The Eternal Love Action was launched in Xinjiang in 2006 to appeal to the public through the medium of women's federations and foundations to knit sweaters for disabled children and disadvantaged orphans. In the past seven years, more than 60,000 children in the region have received over 66,000 sweaters from benefactors.
