MBL’s calling for help to EARTHQUAKE in Ya’an, Sichuan, China
A POWERFUL earthquake jolted Ya’an, Sichuan, China today. Rural area like BaoXing country in Ya’an is where 8 MBL Children’s Libraries were built up (https://www.mothersbridge.org/general/picture-book-donation-drive/). We hope those children… are safe with their families, and their schools/libraries will still exist after the earthquake!!!
So far some information was collected by MBL volunteers from the local that the earthquake located in Ya’an , Sichuan (latitude 30.3°N, longitude 103.0°E), measured at up to magnitude 7.0, and left at least 193 dead, 25 missing, more than 11,470 injured, and around 383,000 people were affected. State media warned that the casualty toll could climb sharply.
We are so happy to know that this baby girl was saved, but no one knows where are her parents…are they still alive?
A boy’s looking towards to the direction where his home used to be…
the school playground is now many people’s home…
Eventually, we have some safe place to sleep…
ZOU HanJun, a 49 years old mum used her body to protect her 7 years old son! When the rescue people found her 7 hours after the Ya’an earthquake happened, she’s already dead…but her son was still magically alive!
Homes were destroyed…and this old lady’s looking at the ruins of her house after earthquake. Without tears, without any words…deadly silence!
Oh…we love our comfortable “Bed”…
Hospital staffs are working so hard to help as many peopl as they could…people are helping each others as well!
This little girl told the reporter that: “I’m ok and it’s not too painful, no worries…look I’m brave, aren’t I? I’m not crying, I’m smiling “. YES, this little girl’s smile make us feel strong that together we could go through this disaster!
