I want to know more about the Jews of Kaifeng, China

I have been doing a lot of research online as of late about the community, and not just their past but there present, but there really isn’t much about the current community after like 2015. I’m very frustrated with how much history of the community ends some time in the 18th/19th century with “they assimilated and intermarried the end” when the remaining community is very much still around. I understand that a lot of people don’t consider them Jews, at least halachically, and I’m not here argue over religious law, but everything I see about them in modern day shows an active fight to reestablish their connection with the Jewish world. Does anyone have any first hand knowledge about the community from the past few years?
