Update from Deyang: schools and children

Psychological counselling and school rebuilding are the two big challenges local educational authorities are facing. Before the earthquake, local government has embarked on a plan of bridging the gap of quality and access between urban and rural areas by building central boarding schools for the children from remote rural areas, who can study in Town Centre Schools with better facilities and teaching resources. Now the focus is on assessing how to rebuild schools quickly. It’s likely as the first step, temporary schools will be built in the central areas.

The earthquake has left more than 4000 children orphaned or without proper parental care. There has been huge waves of sympathy from families around China acyclovir 200 mg. Many of them also have expressed the willingness to adopt an earthquake orphan. International adoption is not high on the agenda.

Our local correspondents and volunteers also told me the distribution of aids is not even, largely dependent on accessibility. Towns and villages along the main roads have been well covered. However villages difficult to reach need more aids. Some self-organised volunteers with better transport, knowledge and equipments are doing well in filling the gaps.

  1. Hi Wendy,

    We are small group of English and Chinese volunteers in Cheng Du. Recently we have been traveling to those areas not completely covered by the rescue effort. We have spent time in PengZhou county delivering medicines and other necessities to small villages.

    We have funds, transport and until recently good information on where to go.However, now we are finding that information on isolated towns/villages is becoming scarce. This week we are planning to get out to DeYang or MianYang where the rural areas are still apparently short of certain items.

    If you have any information on towns and villages that need assistance then please let us know.We can get there very quickly and deliver these items to make the lives of the people bearable until official and substantial aid gets there
    Hope to hear from you soon,
    Simon Edwards

  8. They are made from the strongest materials like the fiberglass used in cars
    and ships. For both sports, if you want to get completely decked out in every form of equipment available you are looking to spend up into the hundreds of dollars and
    sometimes into the thousands. In readiness for this lifestyle and passing
    duel, you will need your own armory which you can use to shed the perilous enemy.
    The snipers are used for precise fire for long range enemies
    or targets. Many folk noticed that bending over to carry this out is a lot easier for themselves, so you can try things out to uncover the
    best way for you.
