Chinese literati and artists are also doing what they can to help mudslide victims in Zhouqu County of Northwest China's Gansu Province. A number of charity fundraisers have been held to support the people of Zhouqu rebuild their homes and their faith.

A charity performance was put on by the China Federation of Literature and Art Circles and Chinese Ballad and Singers Association Tuesday night in Beijing. The event was joined by nearly one hundred artists who performed a variety of shows including poem recitals, song and dance, and short sketches.

Tuesday night's event raised a total of nearly 35-million yuan, or some 5-million US dollars.

And in the following days, some three-hundred Chinese writers also joined the donations for the mudslide victims in Zhouqu. Artists extended their best wishes, saying they will always be there to support and do the best they can to help the Zhouqu people overcome the catastrophe.
