Children Most Vulnerable in the Aftermath of Sichuan Earthquake


Anonymous manFan Xiaowen, Program Manager 

Sichaun, China

April 21, 2013

It was not a typical Saturday for the
children in Sichuan, China. Instead of enjoying a weekend morning, a 7.0
magnitude temblor rocked the province, causing buildings to collapse and roads
to be blocked due to debris and landslides.

At least 180 people have been killed in
the most affected areas of Ya’an and Lushan, children among them. Overall, 1.5
million people have been affected and tens of thousands left homeless. Rescue
workers dove straight into action, trying to pull as many people out of the rubble
within the first 72 hours, also known as the golden hours for rescuing quake
affected people.

In Chengdu, where Save the Children’s
closest field office is located, tremors were felt but little damage was
sustained. Despite having families to care for as well, staff immediately
arranged to go into the field to assess the damage and impact on the most
vulnerable children and their families in the worst-affected areas of Ya’an and
Lushan.

will not be easy. Roads have been blocked due to debris and landslides. Many
could be cut off as rescue workers find their way through the rubble.
Electrical lines are down and mobile communications signal poor in some areas.
Wet weather has also been predicted by weather forecasters in the coming days.
Mudslides and flash floods are also possible with heavy rain in the mountainous
areas. Temperatures are expected to fall to as low as 13 degrees Celsius at
night, and children without blankets and shelter could be left out in the cold. 

More than 24 hours have passed, and
children could have spent the night without clean water, hot food, blankets and
a bed to sleep in. As we go into the worst-affected areas, we are especially
concerned about the children who have been separated from their parents in the
chaos.

It is going to be a very distressing
period for young children, especially those who have lost their homes and
playgrounds and had school interrupted. They will almost certainly require a
safe place to play, learn and talk through their experience in order to regain
a sense of normalcy again.

About 230,000 children have been
affected in this earthquake and we are now working around the clock to reach
vulnerable children and their families.

  50. So, I was gonna just get a couple items that I know we might get good use out of for our kiddo

  51. I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this specific issue and it does indeed present us some fodder for thought. However, because of just what I have experienced, I simply hope as the actual opinions pile on that men and women continue to be on issue and in no way get started upon a soap box involving some other news du jour. Yet, thank you for this excellent piece and though I do not really go along with it in totality, I regard your standpoint.

  52. There is no better place online to get the official cheap jerseys merchandise on sale than jerseysusacheap.com.Save up to 50% off & free shipping

  53. Ive to say, I dont know if its the clashing colors or the dangerous grammar, however this weblog is hideous! I mean, I dont need to sound like a know-it-all or something, but might you could have possibly put a little bit more effort into this subject. Its really attention-grabbing, however you dont signify it nicely in any respect, man. Anyway, in my language, there usually are not much good supply like this.
