The scale of the disasters in China and Burma –like the tsunami of 2006– challenge our ability to actually understand what has happened in those places.
When we read that 10,000 school children died in the China quake, that’s an awful number, but also an abstract one.
Nine fourth graders survived in a class of 48, part of which was photographed in June.
A 5.8 aftershock struck China today, imperiling relief workers and raising concerns over the already weakened infrastructure of the region.
As noted on the radio show since the quake occurred, Caring for China is a Christian organization that runs orphanages and clinics in the region devastated by the quake. CFC has established an earthquake relief fund which you can be assured will be managed efficiently and with immediate impact for the relief of the victims. CFC has been in the area for a quarter century, and its leadership and staff is first rate. You can donate online here, or you can send a check to:
