5.12.2008 Wenchuan earthquake in Sichuan was a heart-wrenching tragedy, but also a peak of national unity and trust of government. During the time, hardly a day passed without news about ordinary Chinese people making donations. Yet…4 years later, these donations are found to be still in their original packaging, untouched and sitting quietly in warehouse.

When journalists went to a senior home in Leigu town, Beichuan, which was one of the most affected areas during the earthquake, the biggest news they got was unsealed donations stored in the warehouse.
