Even though electricity supplies had not yet resumed, Li held a meeting illuminated by flashlights as he spread out a map and directed relief work.

"I have met many people affected by the disaster in Lushan, and I told them that the government will help you to rebuild a beautiful home," he said.

The premier visited patients at West China Hospital in Chengdu, capital of Sichuan, on Sunday. The hospital is treating many of the seriously injured.

"You do not have to worry about medical treatment fees. The government will take care of you," Li told 71-year-old Yang Shangming, while holding his hand and asking him about his injuries and treatment.

While visiting Zhang Ke, a seriously injured 8-year-old boy, Li leaned over and whispered: "Does it hurt? Don't be afraid. You will be fine."
