UNICEF ready to provide assistance to landslides-affected areas in China

UNICEF is preparing to respond to requests for emergency assistance for children and families affected by the devastating landslides in Zhouqu County in Northwest China’s Gansu Province.

State media reported that as of today, the landslide, the deadliest to hit China in six decades has caused 702 deaths, 1042 missing and 45,000 people evacuated.

The Government of China has dispatched rescue teams, medical support, emergency relief supplies and soldiers to Zhouqu County. Rescue efforts continue to be hindered, however, by rains and heavy mudflows which have blocked major roads. As students are currently on summer vacation, school was not in session when the landslide struck. However, in any emergency, young children are among the most vulnerable.
