Catholic aid for China’s earthquake victims continues to arrive.
On Friday another 100 tons of rice and 10 tons of cooking oil arrived in nine trucks. The supplies will feed over 10,000 people near the epicenter for ten days. On June 8, 20 tons of rice and 307 barrels of cooking oil arrived in an affected area.
Priests, religious and lay relief volunteers, who are coordinated by Jinde Charities, have helped unload the supplies in nine of the poorest districts near the epicenter. The local authorities have told the priests, “we assure you, on our honor, to distribute the aid well, doing all we can to be worthy of the Catholics’ love and generosity.”
