The Hong Kong Committee for the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) said on April 14 that it has up to now raised 140 million HKD to help the earthquake-hit areas in Sichuan with their reconstruction. The committee's Ambassadors Charlie Young, Miriam Yeung and Louis Koo also flew to Sichuan on April 14 to participate in related charity events.

Charlie Young, Miriam Yeung and Louis Koo, as Ambassadors of the Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF, will pay goodwill visits to An County, Beichuan and Pengzhou over four days. The visits are in order to learn about the reconstruction work their committee has been carrying out in those places, including work in education, protection and psychological counseling for children, health and nutrition, as well as drinking water supply and environmental hygiene. Reporters learned that the three stars visited the earthquake-hit areas a year ago with UNICEF.

Since the earthquake occurred in Sichuan, UNICEF has been in constant contact with relevant departments of the Chinese government. In addition to timely providing emergency disaster relief materials, it has also offered psychological counseling to children and earthquake victims, and built temporary schools in areas under reconstruction while providing other educational assistance to teachers and students.
