An Expat’s Message of Miracles in a Sea of Tents


This morning, I received a letter from an American Expatriate living in Changzhou. Now I put it into my blog so that more friends can share their story!

Celtics go! Celtics go!
My eyes have been glued to the screen of the tube for almost 3 hours on Jiangsu TV sports channel yesterday morning! (CCTV-5 was broadcasting live Beijing Olympic Torch Relay in Kunming) And my support finally paid off, Celtics beat Lakers again in Boston and will go to Staples Center by taking 2-0 lead! As a die-hard NBA fan, I ‘d like to say a few words about the game 2 of the final this year, whether professional or not!

Enter Wang Jian’s Blog

I’ve been very privileged to be a CTV News Anchor for seven years. I don’t know about you, but I’m continually amazed at the wonder of technology. We can interact with one another like never before in history. Seven years ago I had no idea what a BLOG was – did it exist?  And now it is part of our culture.


I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself. A journalist life is one filled with fact-finding and diverse networking, so that the audience can always get the best possible current information about any given situation in life. And I’ve had a front-row seat as the development of Changzhou has progressed.


CTV’s English News program is the ONLY English-speaking presentation on Changzhou’s local television network. So I take on the responsibility of being an excellent source of information to the Expat community very seriously. The goal of the CTV television crew is to become your BEST source for Business, News, Entertainment and Special Events.


I hope this blog is a catalyst towards creating a stronger relationship between Changzhou and its Foreign Citizens. We want to help make your life here easier, and more interesting. We care about YOU!

Beginning this year, for all people in China, the Dragon Boat Festival (端午节) will mean free days between June 7 – 9. (Cool! 3 days holiday! It means lazy morning and basketball fun for me! )

Officially falling on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month, the Dragon Boat Festival is also known as Double Fifth Day. While many stories regarding its origin abound, the most popular and widely accepted version regards Qu Yuan, a minister during the Warring States Period (475 - 221 BC)

This historic night was sponsored the Changzhou Charity Association, China Red Cross and the Changzhou Chamber of Commerce. More than 4,000 people attended including a noteworthy number of very generous foreign citizens.

Changzhou’s top leaders described the swift relief action our city took after the disaster. The municipal government immediately designated 5 million yuan, and dispatched medical teams, fire-fighting soldiers, electricians and survival materials within the first 24 hours of the horrific event. By May 23rd an additional 100 million yuan, along with 7,000 tents and 20 million yuan worth of medicine had been sent to the quake area.

Party Secretary Fan Yanqing, who is also the honorary President of the Changzhou Charity Association delivered a heartfelt speech about the duty that all Citizens of Changzhou should have to aid the disaster victims. And he expressed that by extending a helping hand in the spirit of harmony and unity, these virtues assist in building a stronger society for us all.

 By the end of the evening an estimated 173 million yuan had been collected to help ease the suffering of the earthquake victims.

Dear Citizens,

THANK YOU for your generosity and support. May all those affected find peace, and recover from this horrible disaster quickly!
