As of May 17, the Macao Red Cross has received donations of 15 million patacas (1.9 million U.S. dollars) from local communities for quake-hit Yushu County in China’s Qinghai province.

Fuhong Society of Macau, a charitable organization for the disabled and people with intellectual disabilities, donated 60,000 patacas to help the people suffering from earthquake and the people affected by drought in southwest China.

The Macao Chamber of Commerce has already raised over 1.28 million patacas contribution funds for Yushu and later they’ll transfer them to the Red Cross.

In addition to monetary contributions, more than 80,000 pieces of warm clothing donated by Macao people and some civil groups have been delivered to Yushu.
