Charity campaigns in Huizhou City, south China's Guangdong Province, have gained recognition from China Volunteer Service Federation (CVSF).
As the third batch of pilot cities in public service, Huizhou boasts of a fast growth rate of registered volunteers.

Over the past four years, the number of the registered activists has increased from around 100 in 2014 to some 576,776 in 2018.

Voluntary service organizations and activities are also witnessing a rapid development in the city.

The extensive mass base lays a solid foundation for Huizhou to build itself into a leading Chinese city in this area.

To further promote charity campaigns in the city, various activities including establishing new voluntary service organizations and setting up service stations have been carried out under the guidance of the local government.

Meanwhile, Huizhou rolled out a series of policies to reward those dedicated to public service activities.
