Our China Director of Operations has been working closely with the Ministry of Civil Affairs in Beijing as well as the Provincial level Civil Affairs Bureau in Qinghai and the Yushu Distater Relief Committee- which has overseen all relief aid in the province since the earthquake.
We have provided basic water supplies of bottled water until permanent style displacement camps are completed. The government has dissuaded our organization from installing water purification equipment until such housing is established. Our target date for launch of long term support is late fall 2010.
Although several months after the initial earthquake, this time frame is important as it is prior to the winter weather changes which will force many of the nomadic families, who were displaced by the earthquake, to settle in more secure structures and in which safe water is of paramount importance.
