On May 12th, 2008, a magnitude-8.0 earthquake hit Wenchuan, Sichuan province, which has caused serious damages for the local people and the death toll has been about one hundred thousand. The 13rd Beijing Essen Welding and Cutting Fair opened in Beijing International exhibition center on May 14th. Tang Wei, the general manager of WTEC, showed great concern about the people in the disaster stricken area, set up a donation box before the exhibition stand and donated firstly, hoping that more people will donate and support this area.
Moved by Mr. Tang’s action, all the people present donated generously, indicting their support and condolence to the stricken people, which has become the most moving scene in this Fair. About 20,000 RMB was collected through this donation activity, which may be utterly inadequate for the people, but it is filled with the true love in the world and gives us the full confidence for the reconstruction and the future of the stricken area.
Come on, China, and cheer up, Sichuan. We firmly believe that the people in the disaster stricken area will reconstruct their homes soon under the care of the Communist Party and government and the support from the people nationwide.
