Pu Mengli, an enthusiastic grade-three student at a high school in Yuanyang County, southwest China's Yunnan Province, recently received a special subsidy of 1,000 yuan, provided by the Alibaba Poverty-alleviation Fund, so she can get health and education insurance. 

There are around 500 registered impoverished female students in Pu's school. Now, all of them can get a similar student-subsidy payment as part of an online scheme.

It is the first time that the school has engaged in online insurance.

"It is convenient to settle claims, and the process is transparent. All the processes can be completed via mobile phone, which also improves the efficiency of poverty-alleviation work," said one official. 

In total, 76,808 women are eligible to apply for the public-welfare insurance around the county. 

Wang Jing, who is in charge of the project, said: "The project is being piloted in three counties in central China's Hubei, southwest China's Yunnan, and northwest China's Shaanxi."

"It initially plans to cover 160,000 women, and except education insurance, critical illness and childbirth insurances are included," Wang added.

    Como la nieve.
    ( last version )

    En observant l'infini
    et quand le souffle
    de la brise caresse
    mon visage en
    donnant le délassement
    par quasi brillare
    quel fascio di
    luce che mesto
    s'adagia ed incanta
    il creato: como
    la nieve que dulce
    regresa en el
    soplo del sol,
    como una rosa
    que canta y regala
    una triste armonía
    spreading a verse
    in the heart of
    the country...
