Famous film star Jackie Chan announced January 20 that he will donate 5 million yuan to Chinese peacekeeping troops and family members of 8 Chinese peacekeepers who lost their lives during the Haiti earthquake in order to express his sympathy to the family members of the dead, and to show respect to Chinese peacekeeping policemen.

Chan added that with the approval from relevant departments, 2 million yuan of the donation will be transferred to the family members of the peacekeepers who died in Haiti through the funeral committee for Chinese peacekeepers who were dispatched by the Ministry of Public Security to Haiti.

250,000 yuan will be transferred to each family and the remaining 3 million yuan will be given directly to China's peacekeeping troops for Chinese peacekeeping policemen's peacekeeping activities, military residence reconstruction, and local disaster relief work.
