China quake: Please help me..

I subscribe to BBC’s Global News podcasts. Since the China earthquake they have been covering it in every podcast episode.

The latest episode (Global News 21 May AM edition) had a reporter covering the orphaned kids, reporting from a makeshift middle school, of only tents.

One account was on a couple of kids. Both are too young to really understand what happened, with the older one still waiting for their parents to come pick them up. Their grandfather says he’s over 60 years old now, admits he cannot care for them, has to rely on the govt, and worries about their future.

Another account is on a 14 year old boy who does know what’s going on. He was only recently reunited with his younger 8 year old sister. He wants to stay with his aunt and uncle, “but if they don’t want us, we will go.”

Dr Pixie is looking to go there to give any assistance she can. But I understand that she is unable to obtain a Chinese visa. At the moment she and another Dr are looking for ways they can go.

If anyone can help with “pulling strings” with Chinese visa, please let me know.
