A Guangzhou-based company that “donated” 200,000 yuan (HK$253,000) for a 10-year-old girl’s leukaemia treatment has asked her relatives to return 150,000 yuan, saying the amount was a mistake, the Southern Metropolis News reported. A local community aid centre had called for donations for the girl, known as Leping, who is being treated in Shenzhen. But the girl’s family received a request from the company to return 150,000 yuan, days after receiving a 200,000 yuan donation from the company. A secretary to the company’s director, surnamed Wu, explained he planned to donate 200,000 yuan, but his boss agreed to only 50,000 yuan. As the girl was waiting for the donation so an operation could proceed, the company accountant transferred the money without approval from the director. Leping’s family agreed to return the money as they had already received more than 900,000 yuan in other donations, enough for her current treatment. They promised to release details of Leping’s medical expenses once a month.
