Below are some paintings from school childreen who were survived from 2008 earthquake in Sichuan province, an area called Wenchuan.
Few years later, just two weeks ago, another powerful earthquake in Sichuan happened again and this time it’s in the area called Ya’an! So far it was reported 193 dead, 25 missing, and more than 11,470 were injured…very very sad!
MBL set up children’s libraries in 8 elementary schools (photos attached here) in rural areas in Ya’an in 2011 as part of our after 2008 earthquake rebuilt programme…but now we are really worried about how are those poor children, orphans, and MBL schools & libraries after the earthquake happened on 20th April! Hope those children are still alive, their families are still with them, those orphanages are still there as some little ones’ “home”, and their schools & libraries still exist as the places for dreams to come true…
