On August 20, the donation ceremony of the China Children and Teenagers’ Fund (CCTF) and Douyin “Children Disaster Prevention and Reduction Program” was held in Beijing. The organization and company will work together in the field of children safety in the future. Deng Li, Vice President and Secretary of the Secretarial of the All-China Women Federation, accepted the donation and issued the donation certificate on behalf of CCTF.
Due to the weak safety awareness of children and the lack of awareness and response to disasters and accidents, as well as the relatively insufficient education awareness of disaster prevention and mitigation and education resources, children suffer more injuries in various disasters and accidents. In May 2018, CCTF launched the “Children Disaster Prevention and Reduction Program” on the basis of summarizing many programs about children safety that have been carried out over the years, such as “Children Safety Experience Classroom” and “Ankang Home”.
