The Wenchuan Earthquake in 2008 ushered in the rise of China’s philanthropic sector and a long-lost sense of sympathy and compassion was once again awakened. In the years since, efforts have been made to ensure impoverished, disabled and left-behind children receive integrated schooling and parental care. Harmony has been reached between protected animals like leopards, elephants and their human neighbors. Environmental protection is no longer an empty slogan. Rescues are more effective and charity events are legally regulated. The leverage of the internet has facilitated donations, united people suffering from rare diseases and transmitted quality online education to rural classes. The three-year Covid-19 pandemic is a turning point for social organizations and vulnerable lives.
