At a shelter in the city of Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, 17 children are going to celebrate the beginning of the Year of Rabbit at its Protection Center for Homeless Children. Among the 17 kids, the youngest is 4 years old, and the oldest is aged 14. The newest comer arrived just a few months ago, and the longest stay spans more than three years. Some were abandoned by their families at a very early age because of having symptoms such as intellectual disability, hearing impairment, and muteness. Some ran away from home after long-time suffering of child abuse and torture, and are unwilling to tell shelter staff their home addresses. There are also children who simply got lost and are unable to contact their families.
