Kansas City, MO – It has been almost a month now since an earthquake devastated the Sichuan Province in China, killing almost 70,000 people and displacing millions. Here in Kansas City, many people with family in China have been particularly affected by the tragedy - even if they're from provinces far from the earthquakes' epicenter. Gao Ge is Vice President of UMKC's Chinese Students and Scholars Association. The organization is collecting money for victims of the disaster. Gao told KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross that his parents were visiting from China when they first heard about the earthquake.
