08-01-2011 09:15 BJT

BEIJING, July 31 (Xinhua) -- The Red Cross Society of China (RCSC), one of China's leading government-sponsored charity organizations, launched a pilot online database on Sunday to disclose donation information and provide more transparency to the public.

Information on donations to the RCSC national organization after January 11 of last year is available on the database, whereas information about donations to the Chinese Red Cross Foundation and the RCSC's local branches is not, due to technical reasons, according to a statement from the RCSC on Sunday.

Information can be searched by the donor's names at the website,

Information regarding donations to areas devastated by last year's 7.1-magnitude earthquake in Yushu of northwest Qinghai Province, including the total amount of donations and the way in which the funds were distributed, is some of the first information featured on the site.

The site also indicates that information about donations to mudslide-hit Zhouqu County in northwest Gansu Province, the 5.8-magnitude quake-hit Yingjiang County in southwest Yunnan Province, as well as donations to the RCSC for quake-hit Japan will be published soon.

Moreover, netizens can check out the RCSC's auditing and fiscal reports in 2010 on the website.

The online platform is now operating on a trial basis, and public suggestions regarding the improvement of the site are welcome, said the RCSC statement.
