Life Continues after Wenchuan Earthquake
Peter Jochimsen, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Baltic Sea University in Germany, suffered from leukaemia. For more than 10 years, he had relied on medicine to survive, but he had been mentally and physically exhausted by his disease. In 2008, Peter began to financially aid to construct a primary school in the mountains of Guangxi, in southwestern China. The picturesque scenery, simple and unadorned culture, miraculous herbal medicines and traditional Chinese shadow boxing, Taijiquan, made Peter’s life radiate with luster. After the serious earthquake in Sichuan Province, China in May 2008, Peter travelled to the disaster area, hoping to help the affected children with their studies. Facing an incurable disease and the natural disaster, Peter and the children showed to the world: with love as a bridge, a happy life will continue forever.
