Moments showing Xi's care for people with disabilities

China celebrates its 33rd national day of assisting disabled persons on Sunday. Showing particular concern for people with disabilities in China, President Xi Jinping has pushed for society-wide support efforts.

Over the years, the Chinese government has been striving to meet the essential needs and raise the quality of life of people with disabilities. Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, has shown his support on many occasions.


Ahead of the Spring Festival in 2014, when visiting a welfare home for orphans and children with disabilities in Hohhot, the capital city of north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Xi learned some words in sign language from Wang Yani, who has hearing impairment, and encouraged the girl to pursue excellence in her school years and chase her dreams.

Wang has since realized her dream of becoming a teacher in a special education school, and she intends to pass on the skills she has learned to children with hearing or visual impairments so they too can go out into the world and serve society.
