Panda Care is a volunteer group formed after the May 2008 Sichuan earthquake in Sichuan. They aim to help children living in poverty who lost love ones to the disaster.
The mudslide in July 2013 not only influenced the life and economy of the local people, but also made it difficult for people who needed to travel through this region. One month after the slide, we visited the place with the purpose of delivering funds to the children we support. We walked into the village at the end of August. We had to walk along the river and cliffs. When we got back in September, we were less lucky. Several days of rain made the river rise and submerge the paths we normally walked on so we had to walk on steel pipes across the river. Even so we were lucky, because we not only had the steel pipes but also, we had each other.
