Ahead of the second上海千花网f the bill in the Legis

 the Legislative Council, the protests escalated.

On June 15, Hong Kong leader Lam suspended the bill. The next da上海千花网

y, Lam apologized and offered to “accept all criticism” and “serve the public”.

But the demonstrations did not stop.

上海千花网女神会所Paul Yeung, a Hong Kong-based researcher and commentator on public policy, said the protests against the extradi

tion bill have morphed into demonstrations against the local government’s manner of responding to pub

lic opinion. Thus the protests are continuing, though the bill has been declared “dead”, he said.

Some observers say many y上海千花网oung people who took to the streets were merely affected b

y peer influence, instigated by a small number of radicals, and lost their critical thinking and simply followed.

Yeung said another factor leading to the situation in Hong Kong is that the government上海千花网女神会所

has failed to respond in a timely manner to young people’s aspirations and sentiments throughout the process.

上海千花网He said channels that the Hong Kong government is to establ

ish to communicate with local people can help break the city’s current deadlock.

But he said it will be a difficult task, given the tense social atmosphere. “It is imperative to restore peace and r上海千花网

ationality to society, with both sides showing a willingness to compromise before dialogue,” he added.

Hong Kong was a British colony for more than 150 years, and p上海千花网女神会所

art of it, Hong Kong Island, was ceded to the United Kingdom after a war in 18

42. In 1898, China also leased the rest of Hong Kong-the New Territories-to the British for 99 years.

上海千花网Hong Kong returned to China in 1997, under the principle of “one country

, two systems”, which means Hong Kong is part of China and enjoys a high degree of a

utonomy, except in foreign and defense affairs, as stipulated by Hong Kong’s Basic Law.上海千花网女神会所

n May, a medical team 上海千花网zed by the Re

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

itional 150 Afghan children with congenital heart disease will be selected after screening in Ka 上海千花网品茶微信

bul and then sent to hospitals in China for treatment, said Liu Xuanguo, vice-president of the CRCF.

In addition to Afghanistan, the foundation has provided h 上海千花网

umanitarian assistance to 26 countries in Asia and Africa in recent years. Among the pro

 上海千花网jects, it has established emergency centers in Pakistan, provided free diagnosis and treatment to children with co

ngenital heart disease in Afghanistan and Mongolia, built a blood dialysis center in B

angladesh, constructed mobile hospitals for Syria and Iraq and donated rescue vehicles in Cambodia and Laos, he said. 上海千花网

“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 上海千花网品茶微信

initiative. Although much smaller in scale compared with international assistance delivered by the Chinese gov

ernment, China Red Cross humanitarian assistance has played a very important role in promoting frie

 上海千花网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 上海千花网

nd was recognized as one of the best humanitarian assistance projects in the country last year, Liu said.

In June, another Chinese medical team arrived in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, to screen around 100 of the m

ost urgent cases of congenital heart disease for free treatment in Hohhot, the capital of 上海千花网品茶微信

the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, and in Wuxi, Jiangsu province.

In neighboring Pakistan, an emergency center established by the foundation in Gwadar in 上海千花网

cooperation with the Pakistani Red Crescent Society has also won the praise of locals, Liu said.

As of the end of April, three medical assistance teams sent by the Red 上海千花网品茶微信

Cross Society of China had been to the center in Gwadar since its establishment in Sep

tember 2017. Large numbers of Chinese employees work there to assist with various projects.

“I have been to Afghanistan four times,” she said. “Although some areas are still in conf

One of her visits to the country was in April last year, to help carry out a joint program bet

上海千花坊ween the CRCF and the Afghanistan Red Crescent Society. Through the project, Chinese medical e

xperts screen children in Kabul for congenital heart diseases. The experts choose the most serious cases and send these chi

ldren, who are referred by local Red Crescent branches, for free treatment in China.上海千花坊女神会所

“I was shocked to see so many children waiting in line with their parents and relatives outside the clinics to see the doctors,” she said.

Although congenital heart diseases are usually identified and treated very e

arly in China, some of the patients waiting for screening are more than 10 years old and上海千花坊

had not been diagnosed previously due to a lack of access to health care services, Gu said.

“Though the diagnosis was free, many of the children recommended by local Red Crescent bran上海千花坊女神会所

ches are from outside Kabul and did not manage to arrive due to problems such as transportation,” she said.

By November last year, 100 Afghan children with congenital heart disease had re

ceived free medical treatment in China through the project, according to the foundation.
