In addition to expressing his gratitude to the medical team.Director Feng fully affirmed our company's race against time and unity of medical rescue work for the victims. With the direct instruction from Director Feng, a TCM emergency medical team was established on April 26, which was made up of Sichuan 2nd Hospital of TCM, TCM Hospital of Ya'an, Baoxing County Health Bureau, and Sichuan NGP. On the morning of that day, it toured the camps of the troops in Baoxing County to provide medical services. The emergency medical team arrived in order at the camps of Chengdu Military General Hospital Medical Team, Chengdu Military No. 37 Hospital, Affiliated Hospital of the Armed Police Logistics College, and Chengdu Military Iron Fist Division Pioneer Regiment, where they diagnosed, prescribed for soldiers. On April 27, the TCM Hospital Attached to Luzhou Medical College and the TCM Hospital of Ya'an took part in this TCM emergency medical team. In the afternoon of the same day, Director Li of Baoxing County Health Bureau, accompanied by Lai Mei, our Deputy General Manager, visited the Chengdu S.W.A.T. force and Sichuan Armed Police Squadron stationed in Baoxing County. In the front line of earthquake relief, many soldiers in camouflage uniforms suffered from eczema, colds, diarrhea and other diseases due to the harsh environment and living condition. In response to this circumstance, the experts of the emergency medical team immediately  prescribed a TCM prescription, and our headquarter’s colleagues worked through the night to prepare 6,000  doses of preventive drugs, which were delivered to the soldiers the next day. With the drug box, love from NGP has also delivered to the soldiers, which provided a guarantee to maintain their effectiveness for disaster relief. 

Our company's earthquake relief efforts in the front-line lasted from April 21, 2013 to May 1, 2013, dispatching a total of 3 mobile emergency TCM pharmacy vans and 18 workers for front-line rescue, transporting 9 batches of 297 varieties of TCM formula granules to the disaster area, cooperating with many medical organizations. In terms of earthquake relief efforts, the mobile emergency TCM pharmacy van developed by our company was applied to the site for the first time, marking a historic breakthrough for TCM in the field of emergency medicine. The TCM formula granules contained in the mobile emergency TCM pharmacy van features the advantages of no decoction, easy to carry and take, and easy to transfer compared with traditional decoction pieces, and also embodies the distinctive advantages in Chinese medicine in terms of customized treatment. What's more, in the adverse environment of water shortage, power and gas failure in the disaster area, with the van, it is practicable for the patient to take the TCM formula granules within 3 minutes. The mobile emergency TCM pharmacy vans distributed a total of 120,000 packs of TCM formula granules, serving more than 57,000 people, 14.8% of the number of people affected in Ya'an.

"Undoubtedly, TCM has been a great help in the earthquake relief to solve the national crisis," said Chen Wenhua, vice governor of Sichuan Province.

On the morning of 21 April, our company took the initiative to contact the Sichuan Provincial Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Sichuan Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences for discussion. The result of the discussion was that, under the leadership of Sichuan Provincial Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, our company would join hands with Sichuan Hospital of TCM and Sichuan 2nd Hospital of TCM, to form touring medical teams to rescue the disaster area. On April 21, the company dispatched two mobile emergency TCM pharmacy vans (loaded with nearly 300 varieties of TCM formula granules with the efficacy such as promoting blood circulation to remove blood stasis, dispersing stagnated hepatic qi, and relieving exterior syndrome by cooling) to form two medical teams with Sichuan Hospital of TCM and Sichuan 2nd Hospital of TCM. A total of 10 workers departed for the disaster area at 6:00 pm under the leadership of our Deputy General Manager, which was the first rescue team stationed in the disaster area, and our company was the first pharmaceutical company that cooperated with medical institutions to go deep into the front line of rescue. Two groups of medical teams arrived in Ya'an late that night.

On April 23, Sichuan Provincial Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine learned that a large number of human and material resources are concentrated in Lushan County, while the lack of rescue supplies in Baoxing County because of road disruptions, so it urgently ordered rescue teams to move to the hardest-hit Baoxing County. Our company responded positively and obeyed the unified command of Sichuan Provincial Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine to give full support to the disaster area by sending one more mobile emergency TCM pharmacy van. At 7:00 a.m. on April 23, Zhang Shijun, Director of the Department of Acupuncture and Moxibustion of Sichuan 2nd Hospital of TCM, led a medical team and a mobile emergency TCM pharmacy van into the hardest-hit Baoxing County at the first available opportunity after the road from Lushan to Baoxing was cleared. The medical team risked the fine fallen rocks from the aftershock along the way, rushed through several landslides and finally arrived at Lingguan Town at 10:00 am. In the afternoon, in response to a coordinated request from the Baoxing County Hospital of TCM, the medical team moved to Muping Town to provide medical services. At the medical service point of Muping Town Health Center, our company's mobile emergency TCM pharmacy van got local people's attention. "I only knew that western medicine could be distributed through a vehicle, but I didn't expect that traditional Chinese medicine could help the disaster area for emergency!" said a disaster victim who had taken TCM formula granules and was in surprise.
