CIVIL GROUPS FULL OF "POSITIVE ENERGY"
Besides the official Chinese rescue teams, a dozen of rescue teams organized by Chinese civil groups also can be seen in Nepal. As part of Chinese rescue forces, they kept close coordinations with local residents and citizens of Chinese origin and have played a role that can not be neglected.
