The Chinese Red Cross Foundation (CRCF) spent R$504 million on public welfare programs in 2023. An annual report was released this week, providing the public with an overview of the foundation’s work over the past year, including humanitarian assistance, disaster relief and first aid services.

According to the report, 11,000 children with leukemia and congenital heart disease received subsidies through a special assistance program. In 2023, vision screenings were carried out for 340,000 people across the country as part of an eye health project, and more than 31,000 grassroots medical workers, including rural doctors, school doctors and primary care providers , received professional training.

In terms of disaster assistance, CRCF initiated nine emergency actions last year. Following a 6.2 magnitude earthquake that struck Jishishan County in northwest China’s Gansu Province in December last year, the foundation raised 79.55 million yuan in funds and supplies to support relief efforts, according to the report.
