* Mobilizing relief supplies as death toll climbs after China quake
* 01 min 58 secs
* Shoot Country: China / Juyuan Township, Sichuan Province
* 13 May 2008

In the rain-soaked streets of Juyuan township in Sichuan province, rescuers try to reach hundreds of children trapped under the rubble of their school.

Fewer than 20 have been pulled out alive. The families of the nearly 900 other middle school students believed inside wait with growing despair.

For most, it is a vigil that ends in grief.

As a massive rescue and relief operation swings into gear, the scale of the disaster is only starting to come to light.

UNICEF is particularly concerned about the welfare of the children affected by the disaster. Some 12 million school-age children live in Sichuan – 150 thousand of them in the quake’s epicenter.

SOT (English) Rutstein, Chief of Communication, UNICEF China: 
“The biggest concern of ours right now is we just don’t know how big this is going to be. Sichuan is one of the most populous provinces in China, it’s one of the poorer provinces in China. So we’re quite fearful that this going to get a lot bigger.”

On Wednesday, the Government of China formally requested relief supplies from the international community. UNICEF is readying assistance in the form of health kits, tents and sanitation supplies.

SOT (English) Dale Rutstein, Chief of Communication, UNICEF China:
“We have a lot of very distraught families. Many of these families have lost their only child. So we think there’s going to be a lot of work to do for quite some.”

But first, the ongoing task of counting the dead – in a tragedy whose victims are among the country’s poorest and most vulnerable.
