SINGAPORE: More than S$9.5 million has been raised so far for the Sichuan earthquake victims from a TV charity show, telecast on Sunday night, on MediaCorp's Channel 8.

The money will be channelled to welfare and education programmes as well as rebuilding efforts, which will include hospitals, schools and orphanages for these children.
More than 100 local and overseas artistes took part in the show, which organisers took less than a week to put together.
