Chinese gov't to provide Spring Festival charity to needy people
More than 86 million low-income, old or disabled Chinese people will receive charity of 10.4 billion yuan (1.58 billion U.S. dollars) before this year's Spring Festival.

The one-off charitable payment amounts to between 100 and 180 yuan per capita and will be given in cash, according to a statement released Thursday after a meeting of the State Council, China's cabinet.

The statement urged local government departments to strictly supervise the disbursement of the funds.

This year's Spring Festival falls on Feb. 3.

Premier Wen Jiabao presided over the meeting.
