Recently a church in China's southeastern coastal Zhejiang Province sent winter clothes to poor, Yi minority people in Sichuan province.
Being informed by the local government of the need in Ebian Yi Autonomous County, Jiaojiang Church in Taizhou launched a clothes donation campaign among its congregation.
The donated clothes included 26 bags of used sweaters and coats, as well as 150 pairs of shoes. Some believers were even willing to pay the baggage fee.
On November 16, the goods were packed up and sent off to the poor, mountainous area.
