China has poured resources into Sichuan since a magnitude 6.6 quake hit early on Saturday, including 1 billion yuan ($161.9 million) for disaster relief and compensation. But mountainous terrain and poor infrastructure have made reaching victims difficult. The earthquake has left at least 196 people dead and more than 12,200 injured, according to Xinhua News Agency. Tens of thousands of homeless survivors of China’s devastating quake are living in makeshift tents or on the streets, facing shortages of food and supplies as well as an uncertain future.
