Official suspicion results in loss of funds for post-earthquake restoration in China

Potential sources of funds for reconstruction following the Chinese earthquake in May this year may have been lost because of suspicion of non-profits and private donors among official circles in China. This is the conclusion of a report carried out in one Chinese county, Mianzhu, by McKinsey’s China office. Qiu Tian, project manager for the McKinsey effort, said her team scoured the local government’s departmental logbooks for unreturned phone calls, returned calls to 50 neglected donors, and persuaded 15 of them to renew their offers, resulting in the recovery of $2.2 million in one week alone.
