    • Church workers at St. Joseph’s Cathedral in Guizhou city collected more than 10,000 yuan (US$1,542) for emergency relief during Masses on June 12.
    • Heavy rain last week caused serious floods in Wangmo, in southwest Guizhou province, isolating the county from the outside world.
    • Overflowing river waters and mountain torrents have killed 21 people and left 31 missing in the county. More than 40,000 people were forced to evacuate.
    • The donations will be sent to the victims as soon as local transportation recovers, a Church worker said.
    • Guizhou diocese, which is based in the provincial capital Guiyang city, could not reach the pastor of Wangmo parish, Father Zhang Yiyong, for two days after the rainstorm.
    • “Electric power, water supply and telecommunication there were interrupted. But luckily, the church was unaffected as it is located far from the flooded river,” reported the priest.
    • He paid visits to all parishioners in the county town last weekend and found out some 55 people in 13 families were affected.
    • Some victims stayed in the church or went to relatives. They urgently need food and clothes.
    • The parish will offer them free accommodation and meals despite its straitened circumstances, the priest promised.
    • The diocese has called on Catholics to make donations to help the flood victims.
    • Some people have brought rice, oil, bedding and clothes to their parishes.
