A new rehabilitation system will be put into operation to help children with disabilities on Oct. 1, said Jia Yong, vice president of the China Disabled Persons' Federation, at a news briefing Friday.
According to a guideline approved by the State Council, the funds for the system will be provided by local governments above the county level, with subsidies from the central government.
