Recently, the staffs of Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography of Chinese Academy of Sciences respond positively to the activity, “To Care the Women and to Love the Children, One-Yuan Donation for Love", contributing a love for the poor women and children in Xinjiang, initiated by the Labor Union and Women Committee of Xinjiang Branch, CAS. Fund-raising activity has been supported by all of staff and graduate students since April 26. They donate 10 Yuan, 20 Yuan, 50 Yuan, 100 Yuan ... and a total of donations rose up to 5,103 Yuan.
The aim of "One-Yuan Donation for Love" is to improve the women and children’s living condition in Xinjiang by raising fund from social donations. The women and children in poverty account for about 2/3 of the total 2.49 million poor people in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. Helping poor women to do some business and poor children to attend school, One-Yuan may be not worth mention, then all together 2,000 Yuan we can help a rural woman to develop production; and a collection of 4,000 Yuan will be able to help a high school student finishing him/her education and achieving him/her dream. Let our love light up the mothers’ and children’s hopes and dreams.
