When the earthquake struck, all the buildings in the town of Jama collapsed in 40 seconds. Ninety percent of the 24,000 residents that were affected found themselves in a dire situation, with no relief in sight. But the town’s mayor was determined to find help for his people, and was following the progress of Tzu Chi’s Cash For Relief program as it went from town to town. It was because of his unwavering dedication that aid finally arrived, restoring hope in Jama.
