    I spent a good half hour looking into it, and it seems like you would need around $400, per month to live like a poor piece of shit in china.
    then they're not out of poverty

    To be fair thats for people living in cities, which i want to say are a minority in china. It should be a lot less expenisve in the less developed parts of china, but still a few hundred a year seems ridiculous. It's pretty obvious this is the Chinese government moving the goalpost to make themselves look good.
    Because of you

    families can get their child the cancer treatment need without worrying about how to pay for it. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. They can provide free housing to families, so kids aren't stuck in a hospital room while receiving the best cancer care.

    Well them moving the goalpost was obv, but that's still a huge number of people. Idk what the cost of living is anywhere in China so 400 USD a year still seems like poverty for me too. How can you cover both shelter and food with that money unless you're living off the land? That's very common in Africa

    They're out of what their poverty threshold is. And China's poverty threshold back in 2010 was 0.55 USD a day, so they have certainly not moved it to make themselves look better. And once again, taking the World Bank's estimates, which at least provide an evaluation based on some universal criteria which is the fairest way of doing this assuming that they have access to quality information, while China has a large population of relatively poor people (less than 5.50 USD a day once scaled by cost of life in the country) it has less people living in absolute poverty (less than 1.90 USD a day) than some european countries and the US, so it's quite clear that they have indeed made huge efforts and that it has paid off.

    One thing I respect about China is that they block Western influence.
