IOCC Emergency Appeal: China Earthquake

Chinese state media is reporting that more than 13,000 people were killed in Monday’s earthquake, China’s worst natural disaster in decades. A massive search and rescue operation is underway in Sichuan province, in southwest China, to free people trapped beneath the rubble. According to the BBC, in one nearby town of Manzhu, at least 4,800 people are still trapped and landslides have buried roads to outlying villages.

IOCC will provide cash support to its ecumenical partners who are on the ground and evaluating the damage throughout the affected areas. IOCC’s cash grant will help provide emergency relief supplies for the survivors.
