Aid Delivery

Description

World Vision staff deliver relief goods to community members after an earthquake struck Mangfei village in China’s Yunnan province in October 2014.

A magnitude-6.5 earthquake hit Zhaotong in China’s western Yunnan province on Aug. 3, 2014. The third of four quakes to rock that province the same year, it killed more than 600 people and displaced about 230,000. Nearly 155,000 homes and 268 schools plus roads and other infrastructure were damaged or destroyed. A stronger, but less devastating quake hit southern Yunnan Oct. 7, increasing the complexity of the response and challenging recovery.

Responding to both events, World Vision provided more than 133,000 people with supplies such as emergency food, blankets, and basic hygiene and household necessities. It also provided furniture for classrooms at 12 schools, and safe spaces for children to play, study, and receive counseling.
