Rescue Diary of Angel Pray Volunteers

Project Update   Donation  Local Volunteers

The diaries were sent from Angel Pray's local volunteers around the cities within the Shi Chuan Province during the first two months of the earthquake. The diaries were authorized for the publication on Angel Pray's webside only. We reserve the copy right. Due to the original update sent from China was in Chinese, we are sorry to update using mixed languages.

July 7, 2008:

July 5th, Mr. Zhu and his local  volunteer team went to Qing Chuan region to distribute the financial aid. The weather in July was very hot. They lived in the tents and woke up in the middle of the night by the small earthquake wave. The small town they distributed the fund locates in a very isolated mountain, where it seems no one can reach there. WHen they arrived, they were supprised to see that there is a team of Chinese army was helping the farmers to plant the field.

Within 3 days, they have distributed the Angel Pray fund to total 36 children.

75日抵青川。567日在青川、陕西宁强、甘肃南端一带深山区活动。除我外这个工作团队有张春嘉、赵建伟(四川大学教授)等。这是这次地震后期的余震中心,至今每天仍有多次余震。气候暴热,人们都住在帐篷或自搭建的蓬里。我们也住帐篷,蓬内白天温度在5060摄氏度以上(没带温度仪,没法准确测),不能住人,深夜始宜进入。6日在姚度。7日晨被余震震醒,嘣地一声,床被轻轻地速摇三下。7日下午去青川大坝,这是一个深山里似乎被世界遗弃的极为贫困的小村落。离开正式公路后,在一条并不太长的泥路上颠了一个多小时,两边无人居住的青山林木葱茏,汽车5次从清澈的水中开过小河流。我们吃惊地发现一支军队的小分队在这里帮农民种莊稼。

3天里,我们已向青川的36位儿童发放了救助金。

灾区农民不缺口粮,向他们发粮不得农民好评。他们缺的是住房,因为很多未倒的房屋也都裂了歪了,不能住人了。此外,他们很多人没有现金收入、没有科技知识。

政府的救助在不少地方被滥用了。成本1万元左右的轻型板材房,落到青川乡镇时,居然被算到2万一间!

从青川到姚渡的路,因青川大桥塌毁,不得不用船来将人和车载至白龙湖的另一端。人车等船,暴晒在烈日之下,晒半小时算幸运的。

为了给灾区儿童发点救助金,我们全都累傻了。

12AM, June 28

In the past month, we worked hard to transfer the first donation, coordinating the local volunteers, determined the project, and made a lot of international and domestic communications.

The first wired donation of $15,000 was received in Angel Pray's China account on June 10 and was converted to the RMB by the ratio about 6.82 in China Bank.

RMB30,000 is currently under processing. Mr. Zhu is working hard to select the qualified children for the Angel Pray Children Financial Aid. One of the receipt document with the child's photo, family information, guardian information is shown on the right.  This little girl is an orphan, and currently living with an nun who took care of her at the earthquake region. We gave them RMB1000.  Once we receive all the documents in the mail, we will update online.

Due to the school building safety issue and compliance to Chinese government's Shichuan earthquake relief regulations, we were suggested to focus the donation on one or two school projects. We are collecting the information and will determine the proper project for the fund.

Letter from Mr. Zhu:

汉旺。

今天的目的地本来是清平乡。但在距清平约20公立处就碰到几处大规模崩山滑坡,悬崖下的河中有三辆被山上落下的巨石砸得不成形状滚入河中的汽车。愿上帝保佑这些逝者的灵魂!在这里修路的是山西路桥一公司的员公,他们在这里一切吃的、穿的、用的都是自己从山西带来的,连汽油都自己掏钱买的,我不明白这里的地方政府难道就不能为他们做点什么?他们在这里冒着生命危险每天每天与山体滑坡和泥石流作战,这是一个极苦、极危险而又极无奈的工作。这种设计得极不合理的公路在世界上还有多少?

他们告述我们说前面几公里的路今天已经打通了,可已抵达绵远河上第一个堰塞湖。但更向前到清平就不清楚了。而且现在过得去、能否回来就是另一回事了。我们只好掉头回到汉旺。

汉旺镇在地震前是个世外桃源,现在只是一片废墟,不时有腐尸气味在你身边萦回。

        这个小朋友叫吉阳俊,13岁,是汉旺中学初一级三班的学生。我们身后的废墟是他过去的家,他爷爷就不幸砸死在里面。废墟边破陋的蓬子是他现在的家。这个家孤零零的搭在绵远河边,由于上游崩山形成了一串堰塞湖,绵远河现在变成了深山峡谷中一道预示着许多不测危险与大灾难的浅浅溪流。这个家与汉旺废墟隔河相望。吉阳俊的父亲与其它农民一道在汉旺那边打义工修河碮,他妈妈在绵竹打工。他现在一个人守着这个几乎一无所有的家,等待8月哪里能传来可以去哪里上课复学的消息。

我们后来去了遵道镇与九龙镇。这两个镇都成了悲惨的废墟。遵道的灾民棚极不合理,十几个人挤在一个几个平方米的帐篷里,帐篷与帐篷之间只有不到一尺的距离,根本不能通风。焱焱夏日、人何以居?九龙最伤心的是它的小学。九龙中心小学分为低年级(带幼儿园)和高年级两个区。低年级为一、二年级和幼儿园,这个区楼房倒塌未得及时救助,大多数孩子多未能得救。有说共两百多名的,有说一百多名的。教职员工也只有5名生还(其中一名炊事员)。昨天就有几百名伤心欲绝的家长聚在这里想要讨个说法。

在九龙学校外的路边碰到一支老兵突击队,他们在这里已经蹲了十多天了,任劳任怨地干着政府和民众交给的一切工作,挖坟、消毒、进危房等等。他们吃的、喝的、住的全是自己带来自己搭的,没从政府那里领过一粒米、一瓶水。

绵竹。危房堆积的大半死城一座。人们排着长队领两勺救济稀饭。

3PM, May 24:

Mr. Zhu is working with a few schools for preparing rebuilt cost proposals. He wrote an update to me at 3am in the night. He gave me a list of local volunteers who work with him for Angel Pray. Please check the volunteer link to see who are local volunteers working with Mr. Zhu. He mentioned Ju Yuan School, which has gain a lot of attentions from the western media. There are some inconsistent numbers about how many students died at Ju Yuan School. Juyuan School said 240, others said at least 600-700. It is the only building crashed in a small region, which is under investigation.

朱小丰:关于聚源中学的死亡人数,现在共有三种说法,一种是该校校长对媒体声称的,说死了240余人。一种是一些人根据各种情况推算的,说死了约800人。还有一种是当地不少居民和学生的看法,说死了600700人。

This photo was taken when Mr. Zhu and Yan Yang School principle met for the proposals a few days ago.

3PM, May 23

昨天, 朱小丰和其他志愿者到灾区去救灾, 这是他的来信和照片: 

        二峨山上,属都江堰市的向峨乡,原有街巷8, 有日生产能力500吨的自来水厂1座,有医院、邮电所、广播电视站、文化站,中学、小学、幼儿园、乡政府等, 有总面积2700平方米市场2座,这里仅蔬菜日上市量就逾万斤,邻近还有一座玻璃厂。

        512日,这里几分钟之内变为一片坟场废墟,没有一座房屋幸存。

      向峨中学教学楼倒塌,430多名师生被埋,300多名师生葬生。但当地村民坚持说,死亡总人数是450多人,其中十多名教师,其余皆学生。向峨中学的阵亡教师是值得我们尊敬的:他们没有一个人象有些学校的教师那样扔下学生夺路而逃,向峨中学上课的老师全体阵亡,我们向他们致敬!向他们留下的儿女父母致敬!

         向峨小学(含幼儿园)倒塌,十多名学生丧身。

         我身边的这两个孩子,哥哥叫丁祥月,是向峨小学幼儿园大班的学生,塌楼时逃出。妹妹叫丁任月,是向峨小学幼儿园小班的学生,塌楼时被埋。她至今生活在恐惧之中,面带未治的伤痕,她还恨她爸爸:因为她爸爸先见向峨中学坍塌,跑去救人去了,而没来救她。她是被妈妈刨出来的。

         他们都生存与极度贫困之中。在向峨,象他们这样的孩子还有很多。

       我们在山里向峨乡莲月村一组农民李福军家的坝子上吃的午饭:以方便面为菜下的米饭。李福军,女儿李阳,16岁,向峨中学初三学生,儿子李攀,13岁,成绩极好,只因家贫读不起城里的重点中学,转读向峨中学。李阳李攀均亡于向峨中学塌楼。妻杨雪兰,重伤,至今不知儿女双亡。还有一70多岁老母在。家里房子已塌,一无所有。

 

2PM, May 22

Since the Chinese government and Red Cross have organized and controlled many rescue arrangements. The board directors and officers are meeting to discuss how to arrange our donation. We will use a portion for the children and orphan, and the majority will focus on rebuild schools for children.

This is the email from my sister today. 这是我姐姐今天给我的信:

妹妹:我已看了你在网络上为地震募捐的事,我也深受感动,你远在万里之外,还情系家乡。这次地震的确很惨,这些天来,我们常常流泪,刚刚网上公布死亡人数已达到51100人,失踪28000人。我记得地震的地方是爸爸30年前工作过的地方,很想听听爸爸的看法。我们现在已是第二、三次捐款了,妹妹你在那边要多发动同学捐款,多为灾区人民做好事。  姐姐  2008.5.22

Subject: 都拆毁了      From: 晓萱

      昨天驱车去了一个重灾区,洛水镇和蓥华镇.

      重灾区已经交通管制.我们因着有医疗队的"绿卡"才得以进入这两个镇.

      这两个镇已被毁灭,90%的房屋塌陷.无人居住.我们到了洛水镇政府,在空旷地带塔建了一个临时救助点.一个医生告诉我们,今天几乎停止救助.尸体不在辨认和领走,就地深埋.他告诉我们,他在一个大坑里最多埋了300多人.一位女医生一直流着泪给我们讲着这几天的惨境.我们站在一条街头望去,两边房屋全部垮塌,不知有多少人倒在里面,我流着泪,默默的问:'神啊,为什么?"

     我们去看了一所小学,还有一小面墙立在那里,是乎在见证着这里曾是充满欢笑和朗朗读书声的地方,看见一堆堆人为堆好的瓦砾,可以想像不到一分种,几百个孩子就淹没在里面,救出的不多,我不顾一切跳下去拍照,好想近距离接近已经逝去的孩子,我虽看不见他们,我只想用我的心去抚慰他们幼小的灵魂,我低声问着"宝贝们,你们在这里冷吗?你们的爸爸妈妈会想你们的...........

     这里还跨了一所中学,死的大多数是高三,高二的孩子,我们去看了一家刚刚失去儿子的父母,爸爸当过兵还算坚强,妈妈一句话不说,神情木木的看着我们,他们给我们讲着前两天找儿子的经过,我一边听着,一边好想对那母亲说:'你就抱着我们大哭一场吧,哭出来好受些."好想多安慰那母亲几句,可我们的话语是那样的无力.......儿子没了,家没了,以后的日子会怎样呢?

    地震第二天,这里一家化工厂氨气泄露,毁坏了这里所有庄稼,庄稼里的菜全部不能吃,他们将面临着怎样的艰难啊.

     我们还去了"战地医院".昨天这里接受了一名被埋了100多个小时的"英雄".他告诉我们这100多个小时,被埋在废墟里,卡在石斑下不能动,可以听见外面营救的声音,他说我三次都要死去,我打我自己的耳光,把我自己打醒,我对我自己说,我不能死,我死了,我老婆怎么办?我孩子怎么办?,我从裤兜里掏出一张纸,100多个小时,我就一点一点攒自己的尿喝,坚持下来.我现在左腿没有了(昨天给他截了肢),我都不知道我以后该怎么生活,坚强的男人还是用那双血迹斑斑的手檫着眼泪,他的旁边坐着发呆的老婆.

     我们默默的接受着悲惨的现实,痛苦,眼泪,伤心..........

      为他们祈祷.

     晓萱
