Location: Sichuan, China
Homeless: 11 million
Remember: it's not just a number.
Many of them are school children.
Their classrooms collapsed when they were having class...
And because China's one child policy, many parents have lost their only child.
But the most heartbreaking thing about the earthquake is that the people narrowly escaped from death are now dying because of infection (generated from the sea of dead bodies) or lack of clean water. Therefore we, a group of Chinese students studying abroad and in the mainland, decided to purchase 5000 boxes of Water Purification Tablets. We have negotiated a deal with the manufactory, and also the aircraft which would ship our purchase directly to Sichuan region, but we need your help.
Please help the victims of this disaster by donating here:

Let's pray for these people, the injured, the dead, and the ones yet to be found. Let us pray that the earthquake will not cause any more damage, nor will it spread to further cities in China.
