PM, May 15:
I call Mr.
Zhu. He was working all day at the front line, Du Jiang Yan, and
interviewed children and helped to distribute the food and
goods. He said that the transportation was just opened through
the earthquake region. All the cars and trucks are delivering
the food now. Since the region is controlled by Chinese
government due to the traffic, not many private people can go to
the region. But the armies and red cross and some organizations
can enter the region. Mr. Zhu can enter there. He asked us not
to rush to send the food now because the government is doing so.
He suggested that we need think about how to help these people
to rebuild their life and home after this. He will provide more
photos and information to me tomorrow.
