Volunteers explain to the mentally challenged children the new exhibition about the city's newly approved master plan for 2035 at the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center.

Ten mentally challenged children were invited to Shanghai's urban planning hall over the weekend.

Volunteers explained the new exhibition about the city's newly approved master plan for 2035 at the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center to these children, who were also guided to visit an African art exhibition featuring some 150 artworks and cultural relics from 20 African nations.

"The visit is expected to help broaden the horizons of the children," an official with the center said. The 2035 exhibition illustrates the master plan with charts, photos and multimedia installations which are easy to understand, he added.

One of the sections displays 81 photos taken and collected by Shanghai residents about their vision for the city's future.

The center also signed an agreement with the Shanghai sonic youth volunteer service center to regularly invite impaired children to come and visit.

The event also marks the China Youth Volunteer Service Day on Monday, the memorial day of Lei Feng, a young soldier in the 1960s, known for his lifetime of selflessly service to others.
