Philatelic show shines spotlight on collectors' determination and passion.


Li Shaohua, a member of the All-China Philatelic Federation and honorary director of the China Disabled Philatelic Museum, hoped that the recent 7th National Disabled Persons Philatelic Exhibition would draw attention from various sectors of society to people with disabilities.


The exhibition was held on Oct 22 at the Zhejiang Disabled People's Home in Hangzhou and is open to the public until Oct 29.


It showcases 256 frames of stamps from around the world that reflect sports and disability support. More than 150 philatelists with disabilities from over 20 provinces, regions, and cities across the country participated in the exhibition.


"Behind these stamps are the dreams and aspirations of philatelists with disabilities, as well as touching stories of determination and struggle," Li said.


"I never expected that there would be so many stamps featuring the lives and struggles of people with disabilities. We are a highly visible group," said one spectator, Zhang Xiaolin, of Shaoxing city, Zhejiang province.


This event is also one of the activities organized by the Zhejiang Disabled People's Home to showcase the 4th Asian Para Games in Hangzhou.
