A campaign of caring for children in summer vacation was launched in Beijing on July 16. With the theme of children's safety protection, diversified voluntary activities of caring for children will be held online and offline across the country while keeping regular epidemic prevention and control measures in place.
Shen Yueyue, President of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), announced the start of the campaign at the launching ceremony. Huang Xiaowei, Secretary of the Leading Party Members' Group of the ACWF and Vice-President and First Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, attended the ceremony.
Sponsored by the ACWF, the Ministry of Education and nine other organs and people's organizations, the campaign will mobilize social forces, link resources and organize voluntary services in a bid to create a good environment of caring for children, especially rural left-behind children whose parents have migrated to other places for work and disadvantaged children.
According to the detailed plan of the activities of caring for children in summer vacation released at the ceremony, it will organize children to tell anti- COVID-19 epidemic and anti-poverty stories in their eyes by drawing paintings, writing compositions, reciting stories or family letters, making or broadcasting short videos about the battle against poverty and the anti-COVID-19 epidemic fight.
With more attention to the protection of children's physical and mental health, the campaign will include training sessions on prevention of sexual assault, bullying and drowning, improving parents' awareness of guardianship and guiding them to help children seek outlets for their unhealthy emotions properly. Lectures on legal and health knowledge will be given to children, guiding them to use the law to protect themselves and to practice good hygiene habits.
Volunteers will be organized to provide pairing-up services to left-behind and disadvantaged children in rural areas to give them help and warm their hearts.
During the ceremony, representatives of lawyers, presidents of the women's federations of villages, women volunteers, college student volunteers and village officials as well as community workers who are responsible for children's work share their stories of protecting children's safety via video link.
Brochures on how to ensure children's safety and "Love Package" from the HELLO Kids charity program launched by the China Children and Teenagers' Fund were handed out to children at the event.
After the launching ceremony, a video course on girls' protection and children's cyber safety was broadcast online, during which experts taught children and parents relevant knowledge and specific precautions.
The launching ceremony was livestreamed by CCTV.com, a major news website sponsored by China's state broadcaster China Central Television.
