BEIJING, July 22 (Xinhua) -- The Communist Party of China (CPC) issued a commendation on Thursday to award honorary titles to 36 grassroots Party organs and 30 Party members for their great dedication and sacrifice in providing assistance following the earthquake in Yushu of northwest Qinghai Province on April 14.

A statement of the commendation released by Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee said that the Party organs and members had shown leading examples in responding and assisting following the devastating disaster, under the strong leadership of the CPC Central Committee.

One of those awarded Party members, Yang Yong, died in a car accident which occurred while returning home after finishing a medical assignment in quake-hit Yushu.

Yang served as vice director of the emergency response office with the health department of the Sichuan provincial government.

The CPC Central Committee called on Party members and organs to learn from the awarded individuals, to maintain their loyalty to the Party and obey the Party's disciplines so as to make more contributions to the all-round construction of socialism with Chinese characteristics.
