Fund to pay for med­i­cal bills

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS -

Bread-earn­ers aged be­tween 20 to 60 from poor Chi­nese fam­i­lies will be given free med­i­cal insurance. The money has been do­nated by the pub­lic to on­line char­i­ta­ble plat­forms set up by Alibaba Group and Ant Fi­nan­cial Ser­vices Group. Duan Yingbi, pres­i­dent of China Foun­da­tion for Poverty Alle­vi­a­tion, said at the launch­ing cer­e­mony in July that the project in­volved fields which tra­di­tional med­i­cal insurance didn’t cover. This would help pre­vent poverty caused by ill­ness.
