Fund-raising campaign for victims of Gansu landslides

Massive landslides and flooding triggered by torrential rain had devastated the Zhouqu County in Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Gansu Province in China on 8 August 2010. Waves of mud and rubble-strewn water rushed down the mountains and submerged the Zhouqu district, levelling most buildings and causing heavy casualties.

As a relief effort, Cosmos Group had launched a fund-raising campaign on 17 August 2010 to appeal to its staff members to make donations for the victims, and to lend the compatriots in the mainland a helping hand. All funds raised will be handed over to Red Cross for disaster relief and reconstruction in the hard-hit Zhouqu district.
