Chinese govt, citizens offer help to Japan

The Chinese government says it will send a second batch of relief supplies to quake-hit areas in northeastern Japan.

Commerce Ministry spokesman Yao Jian told reporters on Tuesday that China will soon send bottled water, surgical gloves and other items requested by Japan.

Yao said the March 11th disaster will negatively affect Japanese companies operating in China, because exports of integrated circuits and auto parts from Japan will decline.

He expressed hope that the quake-hit regions will be quickly rebuilt to minimize the negative impact on bilateral trade.

In Sichuan Province, where a powerful earthquake killed nearly 70,000 people 3 years ago, people are making donations for Japanese survivors.

In Beichuan County, several hundred residents come to a Red Cross office each day to donate money.

One person said the residents of Beichuan want to help Japanese people who are going through the same experience. About 10,000 people perished in the county in the 2008 quake.

The Red Cross Society in Sichuan says it has received donations worth 30,000 dollars and plans to send the money to Japan next week via a Japanese consulate general.

I will also be helping Japan. My dad's aunt is still missing right now.

I am currently participating in a video contest. If I win the competition, then I will be donating the prize money for Japan!

Please support this video, it will just take a minute!
