Fighting Earthquake & Reducing Victims FDC from China

FDC Name:Fighting Earthquake & Reducing Victims.
Issue date:20th MAY'2008
Details:The 2008 Sichuan earthquake at a magnitude 7.9 Mw, occurred at 14:28:01.42 CST (06:28:01.42 UTC) on 12 May 2008 in Sichuan province of China. In China, it was named the Wenchuan earthquake (Chinese: 汶川大地震), after the earthquake's epicenter in Wenchuan County in Sichuan province. The epicenter was 80 kilometres (50 mi) west-northwest of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan, with a depth of 19 kilometres (12 mi). The earthquake was felt as far away as Beijing (1,500 km away) and Shanghai (1,700 km away), where office buildings swayed with the tremor. The earthquake was also felt in nearby countries.
Remark:Nice FDC posted on the issue date by my friend from China by registered post and received today.It is very difficult to know why some FDC take more time to reach here????.
I personally pray & tribute to all those who lost life of their near & dear ones in this earthquake.
