In March of this year, more than 500 employees of the Chinese media have launched a campaign to children in poor areas. According to data for the last month, they already have carried the children a free meal in the amount of 16.9 million yuan ($ 2.3 million). Campaigners say that to fully address the problem of feeding the children of the poor districts must annually spend about 70 billion yuan.

Dissident from Jiangxi Province by the name of Zhang believes that this action members of the media is a test for the presence of the conscience of the government.
"The Ministry of Finance allocates very little on education, and not acts according to its slogans:" Whatever the poor state, you can not skimp on education "," Whatever distress, not to suffering children. " Overall figures we can find in their reports. State income per year is 10 trillion yuan, 56% of which is spent on the maintenance of public servants. 620 billion is allocated for the maintenance of social stability. If we subtract the funds allocated to the defense of the country, it remains a very small part, "- he said.
"On the other hand, — continues Zhang — Chinese society has long led an army of corrupt officials. These people would not miss the opportunity to gain personal benefit. A striking example was the recent scandal to corruption even in an organization as a "Red Cross". The already small contributions to education are actively being stolen by local authorities. This is clearly laid bare during the earthquake in Sichuan Province in 2008, when it turned out that many school buildings were built of poor-quality materials. As a result, thousands of children were killed. "
He also pointed to discrimination against children from poor villages, in contrast to urban children. Zhang compared it with the existing insurance in the country for medical treatment, 80% of which, according to him, used civil servants. In poor villages resemble makeshift school buildings with thatched roofs, which at any moment could fall apart, the kids there are not safe, says dissident.
