(BOXUN) Malnutrition is probably the most profound impact of the people who experienced the Great Famine in the last century, including the Chinese who survived the turbulent political era and still have such a lingering after coming to Western society. shadow. Some Chinese supermarkets in the United States can still see many Chinese people line up in front of some cheap food. The problems caused by hunger not only plague Western society, but things still exist in China.

This Chinese woman, Guizhou University student Wu Huayan, who is only 1 meter 35 and weighs only 40 pounds, is an unforgettable event for China to get rid of poverty. Malnutrition emerged from her. The local civil affairs department made a low-key decision to make social assistance to the disabled after noticing some media reports. However, the Chinese official media did not make any reports or comments during the days after the incident.

Radio Free Asian based in Washington, DC, which has long been concerned about China’s social development, reported that the local government department took the initiative to visit the university student after the disclosure of the Chinese social media Sina Weibo. Many local caring people went to her hospital to visit and donate some money to ensure that she can continue treatment.

“This is a civil rescue activity, but how long this situation can last, and everyone involved in the rescue has no bottom in mind.” A person in charge of a private charity who has been working with the government for a long time said this. This incident seems to reflect that the long-term poverty relief in Chinese society is not diversified, and the scope of the government’s role in it is limited. On the official website of the college student, a news report from the school showed that her funding has been continuous.

She spends around 2 RMB/day (about $0.25) in meal to pursue her college degree

Chinese leaders have promised that nearly 2020 million people in China will soon be out of extreme poverty by 2020, which is obviously a shallow project officially carried out. After the Fourth Plenary Session of the Chinese Communist Party, many government departments in China announced some reforms. The departure from extreme poverty has now become an urgent problem for officials across China. Chinese-style poverty alleviation and poverty alleviation have made some efforts for China’s international image to a certain extent, but most poverty alleviation is still a passive move.

In many villages in China, young people are far away, and old villagers can only support themselves. Urban-rural differences in education, health care and social services remain enormous. Although Chinese cities have become a playground for nouveau riche and a growing middle class, according to the World Bank, nearly 500 million people (about 40% of the Chinese population) live on less than $5.50 a day (about 36 RMB). ). In 1986, the Chinese government set up a special poverty alleviation agency, began to allocate special poverty alleviation funds and proposed poverty alleviation plans.

Why is China going to poverty alleviation? The Chinese Communist Party authorities have experienced a long period of hunger, and it seems that the new century seems to know the importance of poverty for political stability. Forbidden protests, social insurance subsidies have shrunk dramatically to the public, which may be a problem that the authorities must solve.

In the past few years, the Chinese government has proposed many new measures to solve the problem of poverty, including industrial support for poverty-stricken villages and subsidies for funds and education. Of course, such an effect has a certain effect in a short period of time, and there are many problems for a long time.

According to the poverty standard set by China, the per capita net income of 2,300 yuan is the national poverty alleviation standard, which is equivalent to earning 96 cents a day. According to this standard, there are still 43 million people living below the poverty line in China in 2016. In addition, data from the World Bank show that about 500 million Chinese – about 40% of the population – live on less than $5.5 a day.

Since the Mao Zedong era, the Chinese have opened a marathon with hunger. Such problems have been alleviated to some extent after the reform and opening up. Since the Sino-US trade war, the continuous turmoil caused by the continuous decline and recession of China’s economy seems to have raised some doubts about poverty alleviation.
