Chongqing Female Talents Research Institute (CFTRI) held a symposium in Yunyang County, southwest China's Chongqing Municipality, on August 23 to summarize their program on caring for local women's mental and physical health.

As one of the 21 social organization projects supported by the central financial institution, one of its schemes focused on so-called "left-behind" women, whose husbands have left home to find better employment in cities.

Zou Xiaoping, chairperson of CFTRI, said to satisfy women's needs, the organization visited 10 local villages, thoroughly investigating the basic conditions, social services in the villages and women's problems and demands.

The program, officially launched on July 10, invited professionals including academic leaders, professors of medicine, PhD students and psychologists to form up a special team.

Over 40 days, experts provided various services for more than 800 local women in Yunyang County including in Minfu, Huangling and Dayang villages.

Tang Jianzhen, a woman representative whose son has Cerebral Palsy, said the implementation of the project enabled her to learn knowledge related to rehabilitation and nutrition.

He Hongyu, president of Yunyang Women's Federation, called for more organizations and individuals to care for women and improve the quality of their lives.
