Fifty impoverished women from northwest China’s Gansu Province received free medical service recently at the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine during a stay in Beijing.
Professor Chen Yan from the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine gave a lecture on September 3 on women's postoperative recovery from cervical and breast cancers to the women patients who had been diagnosed with cervical or breast cancers in their hometown.
Six experts in traditional Chinese medicine were also available for free consultations and to advise the women.
During their stay in Beijing, the women visited Chairman Mao Memorial Hall, Tian'anmen Square, the Forbidden City and other places of interest.
The group of women had taken part in week-long training in sewing and tailoring skills in Lanzhou, capital of Gansu Province, before they came to Beijing.
Organized by the Gansu Women's Federation and supported by the local Party committee, the skills training and the visit to Beijing aimed to enhance the women's employment skills and strengthen their confidence in life.
