IFLA Fund Disaster Relief now open for China Donations

http://www.ifla.org/earthquake-china/

It is with great sadness that IFLA has received the news of the tragic consequences of the severe earthquake that struck the Wenchuan County of southwest China’s Sichuan Province, on May 12, 2008.

The earthquake with a force measuring 8 on the Richter scale caused major damage to the central infrastructure and many cities and villages in China and subsequently destroyed many library buildings. IFLA has been following the events in Sichuan Province with great concern and deplores the loss of life and property resulting from the terrible disaster that struck our Chinese colleagues.

Below you’ll find the open letter of the Chinese Library Society that contains more details on the earthquake and its impact on our Chinese colleagues.

Contribution

For those of you who want to contribute to the rebuilding and recovering of the Chinese library community, the IFLA Fund is now open to deposit donations that will be used for the recuperation of the Chinese library community in due time. Your donations will be earmarked for the provision of assistance to the affected libraries and their staff.
