Abstract

The massive 2008 Sichuan earthquake brought unprecedented international humanitarian aid to China. The monstrousdamages and casualties aroused all human’s sympathy. I took the opportunity to join a Malaysian voluntary medical reliefteam to Sichuan in June 2008. This essay recounts the immediate events post-earthquake and reports on my experience during the mission.
