Act Now to Help the Yunnan Earthquake Survivors

On 7 September, an earthquake of 5.7 magnitude struck Yiliang County, Zhaotong Municipal City, Yunnan Province. At least 80 were killed, almost 800 were injured, and about 750,000 people were left homeless. As Yiliang County is a mountainous area, falling rocks destroyed thousands of houses forcing survivors to sleep without shelter.

The Salvation Army will provide disaster relief which includes emergency food supplies to those in Panhe Township, Zhaoyang District, Zhaotong Municipal City. In view of the low temperature in the mountains, blankets and jackets will be delivered to 3,000 affected families of around 10,000 people in the initial stage.

Please support The Salvation Army to supply food and warm-keeping items to those in dire need of our help!
