::. 2/07/08  Snowstorm in China‏

Dear CAGK members and friends,

Happy Chinese New Year of Rat to you and your families!

By now most of you probably already heard that the worst snowstorm in decades ravaged most of Central and Southern parts of China. The conditions in the affected areas were exceptionally severe after being hit by the snowstorm. While we are celebrating the Spring Festival and enjoying the happy time with our families and friends, we may also consider those who are in suffering from the snowstorm. We encourage you to follow your own burden and act accordingly. The decision is yours. Please find all detailed information from the Red Cross website http://www.redcross.org.cn/tu3.html. " Thank you all.
