China Earthquake Disaster in 2008

A 7.9 magnitute earthquake strucked China, northwest of Sichuan provincial capital Chengdu and killed nearly 15,000 people. This is one of the worst hit to China in 32 years, reducing many buildings to rubbles. Tears and screaming of families were heard all over the places, calling out to their loves one. Many were buried alive and yet to be found. China is definitely in shortage of tents, medicines, water etc...

My heart sank deeper as I was reading the newspaper. Not only it shut down all the power, telecommunication links and roads but also robbed away the happiness of many families. Many were now left homeless and feeling helpless.

What do they need the most? They need your help. As the rescue workers were trying hard to find survivors, I hope the public could also lend a helping hand with your kind contributions. Even if it is $1 or how much but at least something that we could help them to pull through.
