This activity was part of the Hubei Women’s Federation’s efforts to improve living conditions in villages across the province. So far, with an investment of over 2 million yuan (US$ 321,000) by local governments and efforts made by 100 women volunteer teams, nearly five kilometers of ditches have been cleaned and several illegally built public restrooms and pigsties were demolished.

Aside from cleaning up the public environment, the volunteers also help to clean the houses of disabled and left-behind children, whose parents have left their rural homes to seek better paying jobs in cities.
