China chooses 13 charity websites

Xinhua, August 22, 2016 Adjust font size:

China has selected 13 websites to promote and fundraise for charity organizations, the Ministry of Civil Affairs said Monday.

The websites, including under the Tencent Foundation, were picked from a list of 29 websites by a 20-member review committee composed of experts in charity, the internet, media organizations, as well as donors.

The finalists are open to objections from the public from August 22 to 28, said the ministry.
