Since the Sichuan earthquake of May 2008, SCUK has been working in Sichuan province in China to respond to the needs of children. Through its office in Chengdu, SCUK has built a programme focusing on child protection, education and health interventions. Responding to changing needs in the earthquake affected areas is the immediate priority of SCUK, but a long-term programming need has been identified in Sichuan. Disaster risk reduction activities are now being piloted, other existing work expanded, and networks with government enhanced. It is envisaged that SCUK will maintain a long-term presence in Sichuan, eventually expanding its focus beyond the earthquake, both geographically and thematically.
