Records of about 1.7 million donations worth 31.4 billion yuan (4.6 billion U.S. dollars) can be identified in the system so far.

Chinese and foreign donors had contributed cash and goods worth about 75.2 billion yuan for relief and rehabilitation as of Nov. 25, according to the ministry. About 24.3 billion yuan in cash andgoods worth about 94.6 billion yuan has so far been channeled to the quake areas for use.

The ministry also said on Friday that it would publish a detailed report on quake contributions, including how local governments spend the money.

The 8.0-magnitude quake on May 12, centered in Wenchuan County in southwestern Sichuan Province, left more than 69,000 people dead, 374,000 injured, 18,000 missing and millions homeless.
