June 30th, One Foundation- The Gui province united to help. Nayong Loving volunteers went to the town of Shuidong and met with the local government. They assessed the disaster, discussed methods of disaster relief, and agreed to help the people in Shuidong affected by the flood. On July 2nd, 26 volunteers from different places came together in the town of Shuidong of the Nayong county in the Gui province. They brought disaster relief materials/goods donated by the One Foundation and other internet friends. They distributed the goods to those who were heavily affected by the disaster and sent them to Weibo’s care and spiritual care. In this disaster relief, we distributed 112 disaster relief kits/packages, 100 comforters, 1120 jins (1 jin is about 1.3 pounds) of vegetable oil, and 15,000 jins of rice to the people of Shuidong. We donated over 100,000 Yuan RMB in relief goods, helping over 100 families (over 400 people)
After the goods were distributed, the volunteers spoke with those who suffered serious losses from the flood. They discussed the victim’s life and mental state after the disaster and encouraged them to be strong, optimistic, and positive. Their message to victims was self-reliance and hard work to recover from the disaster.
