Xi’an Alliance works to promote a spirit of volunteerism. Many student volunteers are trained to participate in public welfare activities and social work. The main office is in Xi’an, China.
On August 10th 2014,children who lost their parents were settled at the temp houses. They still felt panic brought by the disaster. The teacher came to the site and tutored the children voluntarily. Seeing the stationeries and living necessities, they said thank you to us with innocent smiles. We were moved to tears……
A village was buried. There were over 100 persons. Only one was survived. There are mountains around the quake-hit areas. The villages were sparsely located. Most of living areas are concentrated at the bottom, middle and top of the mountains, which brought difficulties to the relief. Hold on, Ludian. We are with you.
At night of August 10, the rain storm hit us. Water flowed to the tents. We prayed in the darkness. We concern a lot about the people at the quake-hit areas. On August 11, the weather changed a lot. Our team members were involved in relief work when they came to the site, helping the villagers to transfer their belongings and building the tents. They slept or sat on the ground when they were tired.
Work has been done. 20 persons came for the first echelons and 19 for the second echelons. Just 12 persons returned. 27 persons continue to work for the relief. Brother Yi said goodbye to us. Hold on, my lovely team mates.
