BEIJING, March 31 (Xinhua) -- More than 6.3 million handicapped people took advantage of recovery programs last year, according to the China Disabled Persons' Federation (CDPF).

Their recoveries were made possible with the help of 186,000 recovery centers and 314,000 staffers in some 1,823 cities and counties across the country, according to a communique on China's development of services for disabled people released Friday by the CDPF.

Of the facilities, 991 specializing in treating visual impairments conducted 758,000 cataract surgeries in 2011, with about 310,000 patients receiving the treatment for free, the document said.

Meanwhile, 31 provincial-level listening and language centers and another 1,028 community-level centers launched recovery programs for 27,000 children with listening disabilities last year, the document said.

Other recovery projects last year benefited mentally disabled people and people with disabilities related to the loss of a limb, the document said.
