Edited and Translated by Han Shasha, People's Daily Online

About 42,000 orphans in Sichuan province received renewed insurance from the China Children and Teenager's Fund (CCTF) yesterday.

Most of the orphans have received the insurance before. Unlike from the past two follow-up months, the renewed insurance will take effect immediately on Sept. 1.

As of now, the CCTF has provided 440,000 insurance policies for orphans and poor children from Qinghai, Gansu, Tibet and another 16 provinces. The insurance covers major illnesses, including malignant tumors, illnesses requiring organ or stem cell transplants, acute kidney failure, acute hepatitis and infantile paralysis. The insurance has helped many children get treatment.

The foundation has also received support from provincial governments in addition to donations from large companies and individuals.

The donors will receive an electoral testimonial when they give the online donation. All the donation information can be checked and verified online at, a website hosted by the CCTF.
