Wenchuan Quake Survivors: Donating 100 Tons of Vegetables in Return

After the earthquake in 2008, more than 100 injured people in Wenchuan county of Sichuan were sent to Wuhan for free treatment. Thanks to the care of medical workers, the injured quake survivors were all cured, with no mortality, no infection and no after-effects.

After the outbreak of the epidemic, the people in Wenchuan have been greatly concerned about the situation in Wuhan. On February 4, Zhao Yong, CPC branch secretary of Longzhu village, and 11 villagers drove 36 hours and arrived in Wuhan. The six trucks of theirs were fully loaded with 100 tons of fresh vegetables, which were donated by their villagers to nine hospitals in Wuhan and the medical teams coming from other parts of the country to help the city. On the trucks hung banners bearing slogans saying, "Love from Wenchuan, Stay strong Wuhan."

When the villagers went to purchase the vegetables, the growers said generously, "Pick whatever you want, free of charge, just bring them to Wuhan for me." In return for their generosity, the people in Wuhan presented protective equipment to the villagers and disinfected the trucks for their safety.
