On December 20, Zhejiang province held the inaugural meeting of General Assembly of Charity Association.
The report of the 19th National Congress of the CPC proposed that the system of social assistance, social welfare, charitable undertakings, placement resettlement should be perfected. In order to further optimize the allocation of charitable resources, accelerate the reform and development of charitable undertakings in our province, and avoid the problems of homogeneous competition and membership repetition, the provincial Civil Affairs Department has reformed and reorganized the former provincial Charity General Assembly and the original provincial Charity Federation, and established the provincial General Assembly of Charity Association. After the reorganization, the charity union will play an active role in promoting the development of charitable undertakings in our province, strengthening the self-discipline of charity industry, participating in social administration and providing basic public services, as well as the functions of charitable organizations to raise funds, to provide relief services and to promote the development of industry organizations and to supervise self-discipline.
It is learned that over the past 6 years, the provincial charitable system has raised more than 13.8 billion yuan, benefiting over 10.65 million people in straitened circumstances, which plays a complementary role in helping the poor and safeguarding people’s livelihood. At the conference, a lot of benevolent enterprises have made charitable donations. Zhejiang entrepreneurs donated 20 million yuan to care for the left-behind children, the development of hematopoietic poverty base and other charitable relief projects.
