Winter woes for China quake victims

Survivors left to endure harsh winter conditions in makeshift tents in Qinghai province.

    It has been more than five months since a major earthquake struck in northwest China. It killed around 2,500 people and left 120, 000 people homeless.

    The government has estimated that it would take up to three years to provide houses to the affected.

    Al Jazeera's Melissa Chan, in Qinghai province, finds out how the quake survivors will spend the winter in makeshift tents in a region where the weather can be harsh and unforgiving.
