On Aug. 17, 2011, an event themed Caring for Left-behind Children of Rural Migrant Workers was launched jointly by the All-China Women’s Federation, Unilever and other charity enterprises in Beijing. At the launching ceremony, around 30 left-behind children of rural migrant workers from Anhui province were arranged to meet with their parents who are working in Beijing. At the same time, the organizing committee announced its plan for this event in 2011, and gave school supplies to the representatives of left-behind children as a gift.

This Caring for Left-behind Children of Rural Migrant Workers event was started in 2009. By providing learning, practical guidance and assistance, this charity program has benefited around 1.4 million rural families with left-behind children across the country.
