Microfilm to raise awareness of caring and respect for disabled
A microfilm entitled "Barrier-Free Love" was released by the Shanghai Disabled Persons' Federation over the weekend to mark May 17, a day dedicated to helping the handicapped of China.
The four minute film tells the story of a poor village girl who had lost hope until she received some money to help her study.
After she learnt by chance that the donor was a blind man, she decided to help others.
The film can be accessed on the WeChat account of the federation and its Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok, account.
It aims to raise people's awareness of caring and respecting the disabled, and creating a barrier-free environment and life for them with love, the federation said.
It released a 30-second video earlier this week, which is aired in public transport, local communities, office buildings and on television in Shanghai. It shows how people can help clear pathways for the blind by moving shared bikes.
