As many as 350,000 people in Ningxia live in severely destitute conditions, such as poor roads, water shortages, and a lack of education and medical facilities. The provincial government of Ningxia has decided to invest 10.5 billion yuan ($1.64 billion) to help alleviate poverty within ten years in nine counties and 1,655 villages. [Photo/Xinhua]
