Challenge

Immediately following the May 12th earthquake, ActionAid provided help to earthquake survivors in Ningqiang, Huixian, Lveyang, Xu Jia Ping , Mingshuiba, Xupingzhen, Guozhen, Longdong, Baishigou, Xujiaping , Guo, and Jinjiahe. There were no local aid organizations to work through so ActionAid staff assessed the situation and began distributing relief materials on their own.

Solution

ActionAid also supported six child sponsorship communities in Shaanxi and Gansu provinces participating with temporary shelters, relief materials and training on how to cope and rebuild in the aftermath of the earthquake.

Long-Term Impact

The project helps as many as 25,000 survivors of the earthquake by providing relief and long-term psychosocial support to rural communities struck by the earthquake.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
