The foundation held a donation ceremony on Thursday, in Changting county of the province.

Zhu Rui, chief of the foundation, introduced at the ceremony that this year's donation will go to help 800 students from five schools in the county's rural areas. The money will be used to provide free nutritious lunch to students, purchase new chairs and desks, and reward well-performing teachers.

Zhu Rongji served as Chinese Premier between the year of 1997 and 2002. After retirement, he published several books on his remarks and statements during his tenure. He has donated all his income from book writing to establish the foundation last year, which aims at improving the educational condition in poor areas.
