LOS ANGELES, May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Operation USA (http://www.opusa.org), a Los Angeles-based international relief agency, today announced that it is responding with aid to the Sichuan Province in central China. The recent 7.9 earthquake has mobilized relief agencies from around the world and Operation USA is one of the first to heed the call.
