As Pakistan's death toll climbs, more foreign assistance is pouring into the country. Three planes with 10 million yuan of aid from the Chinese government have taken off from the Shijiazhuang and Nanjing airports.
The plane carrying the hope of life for Pakistani people took off from Shijiazhuan, the capital of Hebei province Wednesday.
With two more planes departing from Nanjing, the Chinese government is sending 69 tons of humanitarian aid.
Early morning visibility at Shijiazhuang is only 700 meters.
The pilot says they've taken many safety precautions.
The goal is to get the aid to Pakistan immediately.
Captain Liu Jun said, "According to the weather information we got, the plane can take off under these conditions. And we have taken precautions for weather changes to ensure a safe arrival in Islamabad."
The aid include 30 tons of medicine, 1,000 tents, and 50 generators, worth 10 million yuan, or nearly one-and- a-half million US dollars.
Everything was loaded by 10:30 Tuesday evening.
