China, November 23, 2022.

The Launching Ceremony of the Malipo Rural Revitalization Couples Assistance Program by the China Public Diplomacy Association was held at Daping High School in Malipo County, Yunnan Province on November 16.

Hu Zhengyue, vice president of the China Public Diplomacy Association; Hu Jian, deputy director general of the Information Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Chen Zhigang, vice president of the China Foundation for Rural Development; Wang Wei, deputy director of the Yunnan Provincial Foreign Office; Lu Bo, Vice Mayor of Wenshan Zhuang and Miao Autonomous Prefecture; Shi Ding, Executive Editor-in-Chief of Global Times Online; and Wang Lizhi, Director of Public Affairs of Yum China, attended the event. The year 2022 marks the 30th anniversary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' joint assistance to Malipo County, Wenshan Zhuang and Miao Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province. Since 1992, a total of 230 million yuan has been invested in the poverty alleviation foundation. More than 700 projects in six categories, including food and clothing, education, health, training, integrated village development program and industrial support, have been implemented, effectively lifting Malipo out of poverty and comprehensively accelerating rural revitalization.Guests , school leaders and student representatives participated in the Launch Ceremony of the Malipo Rural Revitalization Paired Assistance Program. Thanks to the donation from Yum China and the China Foundation for Rural Development, five schools in Malipo, including the secondary school Daping, they now have "Modern Kitchens", which include the main equipment such as an induction cooker, a rice cooker, a disinfection cabinet, a fan, and an operating table. In some rural schools, poorly equipped kitchens that use traditional stoves are inefficient for cooking, leading to wasted energy and environmental pollution. In addition, schools in some areas lack the necessary facilities for disinfection and food storage, posing hygiene risks.Standardized and electro-steam equipment provide students with hot meals in an economical, efficient, safe and environmentally friendly way environment compared to the traditional way of burning coal and biofuels. Meanwhile, it also changes the traditional cooking mode of rural schools, enriching food types and nutrient content for students. Yum China has long supported the improvement of rural children's nutrition. Since 2008, Yum China has cooperated with the China Foundation for Rural Development to carry out the "One Yuan Donation" program for 15 consecutive years, continuously improving the dietary nutrition of rural adolescents and children, whose healthy growth has contributed to rural revitalization.
