Earthquake Update From Jackie

Updated reports on the earthquake in Lushan and Ya'an, China, put the number of deaths at 203 and the number of injured at 11 500. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and all the people struggling to cope with the disaster.

Jackie posted the following comments on Weibo this morning:


Since yesterday morning, I have received many phone calls from friends in the entertainment industry wanting to donate money. You are all so amazing. What moved me the most was seeing the quick rescue response from the Government and aid relief workers. Every time we are faced with a disaster, we are confronted with a big challenge – the challenge to provide disaster relief. Even more of a challenge is how to rebuild the area after such a disaster. Many volunteer workers from my Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation have already started planning. We will continue to monitor the situation in the disaster zone and efficiently allocate funds, aid relief, and materials to the areas in need most. I hope you continue to pass positive energy! Pray for the disaster area!

I have been following the latest news about Lushan, and I have been worrying about the people there. I saw so many emotional scenes on TV. I saw injured children who put on a brave face with a smile; I saw a news reporter dressed in a wedding gown broadcasting the latest updates; I saw mothers using their body to shield their children; I saw a young man embracing his father waiting to be saved by rescue workers. All these images made my heart ache again. To everyone in Lushan, do not give up! We are by your side.




昨天到今天很多明星朋友打电话来要捐款到我的基金,你们真的很棒,我也特别感动看到政府及各界人士这么快速的行动。每次灾害来临我们都面临很大的挑战,救灾是挑战,灾后重建更是挑战,成龙慈善基金会在各地的志愿者已经行动起来,我们会一直关注灾区情况,把捐款和物资送到最需要的时候和地方。希望大家继续传递正能量!为灾区祈福!一直在关注芦山的灾情,一直牵挂那里的人们。看到很多感人的画面,那个受伤后依然微笑的小女孩,那个穿着婚纱的新娘记者,那个用身体保护孩子的妈妈,那个抱着父亲等待救助的儿子……大灾面前,我的心灵再次震撼,了不起的芦山人,加油!我们在你们身边。
