HANGZHOU - Volunteers have rushed to help out at an orphanage in Cangnan county, in East China's Zhejiang province, after a child abuse scandal was exposed at the site.
Days after photos taken at the orphanage showed children constrained with chains and ties, a group of doctors have also offered health check-ups for youngsters there.

The orphanage's director, has been removed from the post on suspicion of dereliction of duty, according to a press release issued by the county government in response to a case that has sparked fury on China's Internet.
Since June 29, photos have circulated online showing a boy's foot shackled to a bench, and another tied to the bench with cloth around his neck. Both appeared to be mentally disabled.
The pictures, taken and posted online by an astounded visitor, quickly stirred up a storm of anger. Netizens described the photos as heart-breaking and a brutal breach of the organization's charity spirit.
The furor prompted an investigation by local authorities, who said the nurses had used chains to confine the two boys, both of whom suffer mental illness.
One of them, 6 years old and deaf-mute, has epilepsy, while the other, aged 6, reports symptoms of schizophrenia with an inclination toward violence, according to nurses at the orphanage.
To prevent the boys from defecating uncontrollably and hurting other children, the nurses, resorted to the constraints, they said.
Investigators found the institution was poorly managed and lacked personnel. The orphanage of 21 children, 19 of them physically or mentally disabled, was only manned by four elderly women, who had received no training or care provision.
Moribund charity
Experts said mismanagement is rampant in China's charities such as orphanages and charitable nursing homes, after they were contracted or sold to businessmen or private organizations.
In 2010, a worker in an orphanage in Shenzhen was exposed to have used tape and clamps to force children to "shut up".
According to officials, the orphanage in Cangnan was contracted to a local citizen. The government gave a monthly subsidy of 700 yuan ($110) to the contractor for every child it took in.
The management of the orphanage, including hiring nurses and spending on the children, was in the hands of the contractor.
Following the scandal, the county government has pledged to improve amenities and allocated nine care providers to the center. A thorough inspection, it said, was also under way to straighten irregularities in charity institutions in the county.
But Zhong Qi, a researcher at Zhejiang Social Sciences Academy, said China now needs a systematic reflection on its means of running charities.
"After blaming the brutality of the care givers and the contractor, we should not forget one important factor in this tragedy: the lack of supervision and the failure of the government to fulfill its role in the charity sector," Zhong said.

With so much time on your useless hands you should be ordered to go to Hangzhou and look after orp ...

I know a german, and really rather german, lullaby that I still know to sing:
"Schlaf, mein Kindchen, schlafe ein,
Die Nacht, sie schaut zum Fenster rein.
Der runde Mond, er hat dich gerne,
Und es leuchten dir die Sterne.
Schlaf, mein Kleines traeume suess,
Bald bist du I'm Paradies,
Denn gleich oeffnet sich die Tür,
Und ein Monster kommt zu dir.
Mit seinen elf Augen schaut es dich an,
Und schleicht sich an dein Bettchen ran.
Du liegst still da, bewegst dich nicht,
Das Monster zerkratzt dir dein Ges..."
I know the rest, just not sure if you wanna know it.
I stated it really is rather german.

Seine Finger sind lang und dünn,
wehr dich nicht es hat keinen Sinn
und es kichert wie verrückt,
als es deinen Hals zerdrückt.
Du schreist, doch du bist allein zu Haus,
das Monster sticht dir die Augen aus
Dann bist du still und das ist gut,
es beißt dir in den Hals und trinkt dein Blut.
Ohne Blut bist du bleich wie Kreide,
dann frisst es deine Eingeweide.
Dein kleines Bettchen vom Blut, ganz rot,
die Sonne geht auf und du bist tot.
Schlaf mein Kindchen, schlafe ein
am Himmel stehn die Sternelein.
Schlaf mein Kleines, schlafe schnell
dein Bettchen ist ein Karusell.
Schlaf mein Kindchen, schlafe ein,
sonst kann das Monster nicht hinein.
Per Ardua Ad Astra

I read Oliver Twist (a book of Chinese version) when I was in high school.

Oh, probably I watched Oliver Twist (a film) again last year.

I guess that text really is a rather german text for a lullaby - not just written in german.

To enjoy some summer feelings in the floods,
A nice summer hookline:
"Die Sonne scheint zu hell
die Voegel singen schief
ich will toeten, toeten, toeten
der Winter ist vorbei
ich habe Fruehlingsgefuehle
ich will toeten, toeten, toeten"

Maybe those orphans will end up with such minds, considering in what kind of society they grow up
