The provincial women's federation, the provincial Party Committee Publicity Department and the Nanfang Publishing House in south China's Hainan Province held an activity on June 1 at a school in Lingao County, to donate desks to 200 impoverished students.

The event was a public welfare project with the theme of sharing the blue sky and advocating for children's development, which was initiated by the provincial women's federation and children's welfare association.

Some 200 people, including Li Youwu, inspector of Hainan Women's Federation, and Fu Shixia, sub-inspector of the provincial Party Committee Publicity Department, attended the event.

According to the federation, Fu has made a great contribution to carrying out the activity. Thanks to her appeal, Nanfang Publishing House has donated 30,000 yuan (U.S.$ 4,406.9) to buy desks as gifts for local children.

Fu said that as an executive committee member of the women's federation, she would keep making efforts to promote children and women's development and help children continue their studies.

In addition, the federation donated another 200 desks to children in Chengmai County on June 8.

At the activity, Li encouraged children to work harder and pay back society through their knowledge and love in the future.

When receiving gifts from the federation, every child had a smile on their faces and they expressed their gratitude to the public's help and care.

For now, the public welfare project has helped over 5,000 impoverished children across the province, fulfilling children's dreams of having their own desks, which was highly commended by society.
