Earlier today, a 6.9 earthquake struck one of China's westernmost provinces, killing at least 400 people and injuring thousands. Untold numbers of families are displaced and needing shelter as temperatures plummet in one of the country's most rugged areas.

Our team in China is in the earthquake region and joining a local organization to assess needs. Your donation to our China Earthquake Fund will help us mobilize efforts and help stricken communities.

Qinghai — a region on the Tibetan Plateau — borders Sichuan Province, where Mercy Corps responded to a deadly earthquake in 2008. Our continuing work in Sichuan has delivered critical assistance to families and provided trauma counseling for thousands of children who survived the devastation.

Please support our China Earthquake Fund to help meet the needs of survivors of this latest disaster. We will keep you updated on developing news.
