China plans to send over 200,000 panda-themed “care parcels” to 11 Belt and Road countries (BRI) dủing 2019, said the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation (CFPA) on Feb.26.

The panda parcel is a 105-item collection including bags, stationery, toys, and daily necessities wrapped up in an outer packing printed with panda pictures that also have included design characteristics of the receiving countries.

The panda parcel project aims to improve learning conditions and further promote overall development of primary students in these countries under the Belt and Road framework.
