China: Moves to prevent disabled children being forced to beg

Posted 02/3-11 at 21.34

The China Disabled Persons' Federation (CDPF), a national umbrella organization of and for disabled people, has offered to help police stop the criminal exploitation of disabled children as beggars.

The statement followed recent media reports that some children were forced to beg after they were abducted, trafficked, or threatened. In some cases, children were deliberately injured to increase their begging potential.

According to the Ministry of Public Security, police launched a crackdown on human trafficking in April 2009, saving more than 6,700 children by the middle of November last year.
