China launched a national campaign of cultural activities for people with disabilities in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province. Held between April and November, the initiatives will include reading sessions, book donations in communities and rural areas and group trips to cultural sites.

A circular on the campaign previously issued by the China Federation of People with Disabilities, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the National Press and Publication Administration emphasized the focus on the grassroots level, calling for efforts to expand the forms and content of cultural activities to enrich the cultural lives of people with disabilities.
