Donate to help families affected by the Lushan earthquake
A 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Lushan county, Sichuan province, in China on Saturday 20 April.
The earthquake killed over one hundred people, injured tens of thousands, and affected over one million, according to official government figures. The extent of the devastation is vast.
Habitat for Humanity China is currently raising funds and coordinating with government partners in earthquake-affected areas of southern Sichuan, and assessing the scope of disaster recovery activities in accordance with their plans. If it is determined that a Habitat for Humanity China implemented project is not required, the funds raised will be used for disaster mitigation work in at-risk communities in other areas of Sichuan we are currently active in.
Previously, Habitat for Humanity China responded to other disasters in the mainland including the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. In the Sichuan area, Habitat has built 1,500 houses to date in ten villages in the townships of Xiaoyudong, Bailu, Jiexing, Zhuyuan and Qionglai.
