Ziyi Zhang Raises Awareness About China Earthquake

Ziyi Zhang and Christian Slater raise awareness for the recent China Earthquake at the Carlton Beach during the 2008 Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday.

The May 12 earthquake left at least 41,353 people dead, destroyed 5.4 million homes and damaged another 21.4 million.

China may take as many as 10 years to recover from the disaster, which left an estimated 32,666 people missing, Christian aid group World Vision said.

Ziyi Zhang has personally donated one million yuan ($140,000) for relief efforts.

Sports star and Houston Rockets center Yao Ming has given two million yuan ($214,000) and half a million yuan to the Red Cross Society of China.

    joss Says:

    regardless if america is till cleaning up katrina or not, they should still help, b/c when katrina happened, many countries who had their own troubles still contributed
    this is where international aid comes in, everyone pitches in and helps, regardless if its a large contribution or not
    this isn’t called everyone helps, but america…

    China only needs specialized help and not any money or goods. Let the governments help them and gain diplomatic benefits in negotiations for democracy.

    Kim Says:

    Jing – I disagree with you comment. It isn’t good to happen anywhere to anyone even if the area or country is overpopulated.

    I feel really sorry for the Chinese people. I wish I could help them in some way. I wish I could physically go over there and help them. :(

    LALA Says:

    GOD BLESS CHINA indeed!!! I truly feel for the people of that country (as well as Myanmar). There needs to be a relief concert or comic relief for the 2 countries. Something about disaster fatigue, but come on we thing we’re tired- imagine how they feel.

  18. 18
    oh Says:

    i totally agree. many of the chinese are richer than the americans.

    And I hope some of the Chinese doesn’t steal the money that were donate. If they did, I am not surprise.

    ah! Says:

    China made billions of dollars (US) in selling chemicals to poison food in the form of preservatives to Asia, South America, South Africa and even America and Europe and its government officials made billions in corruption, selling organs of prisoners. It is time they pay these billions back to the people. After all, Communists have been telling their people that everything belongs to the people, nothing is private thus cannot be privately owned. I’m sorry about these victims but I refuse to help. Aids will end up in corrupted officials’ Swiss bank accounts, not these people. The people should replace their public servants.
