-Shanghai No.2 Branch of Zhongyan Group at Funing, hit by a strong tornado
At 2:00pm, 23 June 2016, Chenliang Town and Goudun Town, among other parts of Funing County, Jiangsu Province were hit by a Level-EF4 strong tornado, one of the worst since the founding of the PRC, which caused 99 deaths and more than 800 injuries.
On the afternoon of June 23, soon after the disaster, the top management of Zhongyan Group called a meeting about disaster relief and had a task force deliver a truckload of supplies to the disaster-hit region.
The natural disaster was merciless. Attacked by the tornado and strong hails, the Funing people were suffering from lost families and ruined houses. Many villages were wrecked. All of a sudden, warm and happy homes were gone and only ruins and broken hearts were there.
The Funing people were going through great difficulties and needed help and shelter. The public must be united to help them rebuild their homes. During this hard time, Zhongyan was by their side and brought them quilts, food, and other necessities, to help them out of the tragedy.
Zhongyan has a human-oriented corporate culture. The disaster-hit Funing people were suffering and needed help badly to stand on their own feet again, rebuild their homes and resume their life. Zhongyan called upon the public to know and care about the disaster-hit region, spread love and do something to help the people out of difficulties.
