Shanghai Helps Earthquake Survivors

Three more teams of social workers left Shanghai on Thursday for Dujiangyan, Sichuan Province, to help the earthquake survivors adjust to their new life in temporary apartments.

This time 53 people from Fudan University, Shanghai Normal University and Pudong Social Worker Association, will go to several temporary settlements for about one month.

They will help survivors establish long-term and effective management systems in the settlements as well as carry out professional training for women.

"We will use the summer holiday to organize the students there, encouraging them to be volunteers to do something for the people there," said Yan Feng, a Fudan University professor.

Social workers who have been to Dujiangyan say the people there had experienced difficulties with building new relationships with other survivors in the apartments. Cai Yi, a volunteer, said they tried to introduce the typical shikumen life style to the survivors.
