d Cross Society of China arrived in Kabul again, marking the beginning of the project’s second phase. It is expected that an add

“Most of the programs have been carried out since 2017, follow
ing the proposal of the Belt and Road Initiative (in 2013),”
Liu said. “Humanitarian assistance is badly needed in many countries involved in the?亚博yabo平台千花网品茶微信

?亚博yabo平台千花网ndship between China and these countries, and emotional connectivity between different peoples.”
For example, a foundation project that has provided free treatment in Chinese hospitals over the past two years to 100 Mo
ngolian children under age 14 with congenital heart disease has won high praise from the Mongolian government a?亚博yabo平台千花网

In neighboring Pakistan, an emergency center established by the foundation in Gwadar in?亚博yabo平台千花网
