Second Oxfam team delivers aid to China quake survivors
A second Oxfam relief team has arrived in Qinghai and has delivered supplies to 2,000 earthquake survivors.
“People in remote areas are in urgent need of supplies according to the local government. Oxfam teams are providing blankets and other aid to 2,000 people in three of the outer lying towns. All are at high altitude,” said Aman Yee, Deputy Program Manager of the Rural Development and Disaster Management Team of Oxfam Hong Kong.
“The sanitation is deteriorating in the temporary camp set up in the town of Jiegu. People have to defecate in the open, litter is piling up, and there is a real risk of disease. To help reduce the risk Oxfam will be helping with public hygiene information campaigns,” said Yee.
In addition to its aid that has already arrived, Oxfam will be flying in 600 tents which are expected to arrive in the remote affected areas later today (19 April).
