Donations and Assistance to the Construction of a Library in Wenchuan On May 12, 2008, the 8.0-magnitude mega earthquake took its toll in Wenchuan of Sichuan. The sudden outbreak of the disaster turned 14,000 schools, including Shuangbanxiang primary school (双板乡小学校), to rubble in no time. Such ruthless natural calamity ravaged the pleasant home of millions of our compatriots, with children’s happiness tarnished in rubbles. No matter how merciless a natural disaster can be, however, love bonds people together. Subscribing to the concept of philanthropy-‘‘all-community support for the unfortunates’’, all staff of the Company raised funds of RMB430,510 within the shortest length of time. As introduced by Mianyang Hong Kong and China Gas Company Limited (绵阳港华) and Mianyang Youth Concern Committee (绵阳市关工委), the charitable funds-as a token of love and care of our staff-were donated to Shuangbanxiang primary school in Zitong County of Sichuan province for construction of a school library. On April 17, 2009, the library of Shuangbanxiang primary school in Zitong County, Mianyang City of Sichuan province which was jointly established by the Company was opened.
