CHINA - Chinese authorities warn religious groups against converting children rescued from the streets [AN]


China has 870 non-government orphanages, 583 run by religious groups. The authorities warn them against proselytising or imposing their religion on their charges. A source in the NGO world tells AsiaNews that the warning is “common sense,” but “it all depends on how rules are applied.” Yet, it would wrong to force a Christian-run orphanage to hide its faith.
