30 of the sites are under national-level protection, and 105 under provincial-level protection. Property comprehensive insurance mainly covers the loss of the insured property due to fire, explosion, lightning strike, rainstorm, flood, typhoon and other reasons, as well as the property loss and personal injury compensation caused by accidents.
The Department of Culture and Tourism of Guangdong Province, the Guangdong Financial Supervisory Authority, and the Guangdong branch of China Life Property and Casualty Insurance Co., Ltd. held a donation ceremony and jointly signed a donation insurance agreement. The donor units are represented by the Museum of Site of the 3rd National Congress of the Communist Party of China.

Guangdong's revolutionary cultural relics enjoy the longest lasting history, most complete sequence and most complete varieties. Among 4,269 sites of the New Democratic Revolution, 1,513 have been announced as immovable revolutionary cultural relics, 30 of which are major cultural relics under national protection, ranking fourth in China. All the 4,783 movable revolutionary cultural relics are precious cultural relics, which are of high quantity and quality.
In recent years, the issue of cultural relics safety has received much attention. Since revolutionary cultural relics are often located in revolutionary sites, Central Soviet Area and other economically less-developed areas, hidden safety hazards can not be completely eliminated. The donation insurance is an effective complement and organic combination on the basis of current cultural relics protection.
During the cooperation period, a special group will be set up to implement the insurance donation. In the event of an incident stipulated in the insurances, the special group will contact the protection sites to carry out a survey and loss verification, as well as collect insurance claim materials.
According to the Department of Culture and Tourism of Guangdong Province, this insurance effectively solves the problems of the damage to cultural relics protection sites caused by natural disasters and any accidental injuries to tourists.
