A 6.5-magnitude earthquake jolted Ludian County of Zhaotong City in southwest China's Yunnan Province, with a depth of 12 kilometers. Because of the large magnitude and the shallow focal depth,as well as the dense population and the poor building anti-seismic capacity, hundreds of people were killed and thousands were injured. This is the strongest earthquake in 14 years in this area.
Our partner Pastor Meng rushed to the stricken area. He visited the injured in hospitals and brought humanitarian aids to the needy.
