Dingjie border police station of Tibet Public Security Frontier Corps has carried out an activity of 'border mothers' helping children of poor families. Nine female officers, called border mothers, have claimed 15 poverty-stricken children from Dingjie Central Primary School. Among those children, the youngest is 4 and the eldest is 14. These young border mothers, some of whom also have their own children, visit their 'claimed kids' at least twice a month. The border mothers' responsibilities are to give the children mental and material support and guide them to grow up healthily.
