Starting from October, 2011, each orphan aged under 18 receives a monthly allowance of 1,000 yuan financed by the provincial and local treasury, according to a new central government policy on fostering orphans.

Wang was named the honorary president of the new welfare home. He and his team of nurses have also moved in with the children. "Now at last, I don't have to worry about these children's existence."

China had at least 655,000 orphans and abandoned children as of 2010, according to Ministry of Civil Affairs.

The government grants a monthly allowance of 1,000 yuan for those living at welfare homes and a minimum of 600 yuan a month for children who live with relatives.
