Welcome to Sichuan Quake Relief

Sichuan Quake Relief (SQR) is a non-profit, humanitarian organisation dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by the 12 May 2008 Sichuan earthquake. At the seventh anniversary of the Wenchuan Earthquake, Sichuan Quake Relief would like to thank everyone who has supported our work over the past years. Everything we have done was made possible by the generosity of our donors, supporters and volunteers. This website will remain active for one more year while we bring SQR’s work to a close.
