Your blankets, towels, and sheets are needed for landslide evacuees from Yingxiu.
This just in from Sichuan Quake Relief:
Following recent flooding and landslides in and around Yingxiu — the epicentre of the 12 May 2008 Sichuan earthquake — there is once again a need for blankets, towels and sheets to provide relief for victims of this latest disaster to hit the region, SQR found today following a needs assessment.
Many of the combined population of around 23,000 people have spent the last two years reeling from the repercussions of the 2008 earthquake. Some had recently moved back into permanent housing from temporary shelters, while others were in the process of moving back into rebuilt homes when the floodwaters swept through their towns.
Access to these towns is currently restricted to official relief vehicles and local residents. SQR traveled to Juyuan Town, just outside Dujiangyan City, to speak with evacuees and other organizations dealing with the situation.
Volunteers said ... there was a pressing need for blankets, towels and bedsheets. SQR will channel any donations to the evacuees through local volunteer groups.
