The Macao Red Cross has received donations of 11 million patacas (1.4 million U.S. dollars) from local communities for quake-ravaged Yushu County in western China's province of Qinghai, the charity said on Tuesday.

The Macao Red Cross has already arranged two batches of supplies, mainly sweaters, to be delivered to Yushu County, which was hit by a 7.1-magnitude quake on April 14, leaving over 2,000 people dead and more than 12,000 injured, according to official figures.

Most of the donations received by the charity will be used to fund reconstruction in the disaster zone, according to the Macao Red Cross.

Aside from the Macao Red Cross, various Macao civil groups, schools and other institutions also raised money for the quake victims and sent the money to the quake zone through different channels.
