Help the Earthquake Children to Recover

The miracle girl

Friday, May 16th, 2008

This is the story of Song Xinyi, a 3 years old girl rescued after 40 hours:

‘Two tigers, two tigers, running fast…’, the singing came from underneath the debris. Everyone was moved by the babyish and optimistic voice.

The child’s life was in danger. The already destroyed building may collapse again at any moment. Then, the little girl started to calm her rescuers, ‘Uncles, I am not scared. You don’t worry.’

Pieces of stones and bricks were removed one by one by the rescuers. Then they discovered the girl’s legs were stuck in the rubble. Her lower body was stained with blood. The child was grinding her teech to suppress severe pains she was clearly suffering.

The 3 year old girl was buried under a destroyed house in Beichuan. Her body was shielded by her parents. After 40 hours of ordeal, she was rescued. Her parents were not so lucky to survive.

When lying on the stretcher, the child could speak clearly. Her name is Song Xinyi, She was in the kingergarten. She likes drawing and watching TV…

Can we keep our promise to HELP them?

Posted with agreement of the journalist with China Daily

SHIFANG, Sichuan province: Feng Peipei promised days ago that she would celebrate her mother’s 36th birthday, which fell yesterday. It is a promise the 14-year-old girl will never be able to keep.

Yesterday morning, Yi Chuanying saw the remains of her daughter being pulled out from a collapsed three-story school in Hongbai town in the city of Shifang https://edrxcare.com/levitra/.

“You promised we would be together for my birthday today, and for yours next month,” Yi, a divorced migrant worker who flew from Shenzhen in Guangdong province to the disaster site, cried. “You also promised to give me a belated Mothers’ Day gift. “But why did you break your promise, my dear daughter?”

The mountainous town of Hongbai is one of the worst-hit areas in Monday’s quake that struck Sichuan province. Life-detecting devices have found that most of the 700-odd students from the town’s primary and middle schools have no chance of survival, rescuers have said. “Today, some remains have even started to emit terrible smells. Hope of survivors is dim,” rescue team leader Wen Hongbin said.
