With more than 3.2 million people affected by monsoon rains and flooding in northern Pakistan, humanitarian aid from China has arrived at a time when people are losing all hope.
Over 1500 people died and about 3 million are left homeless as Pakistan witnesses the most devastating flood in its history.
With lack of resources to overcome the enormous damage, Pakistan appealed to the international communities to assist the affected people, as diarrhea and other waterborne diseases could fast become the biggest killer in this emergency.
The first to step forward is China. Three planes carrying relief goods from China arrived early afternoon at Islamabad air base.
These relief goods will be transported to the effected areas.
Liu Jian, China's Ambassador to Pakistan, said, “China is providing water filtration plants, generators, tents and medical kits. Whenever we see Pakistan needs help.”
As a close friendly neighbor of Pakistan, china expresses deep condolences over the victims of the flooding.
The Chinese government has provided the Pakistan government emergency humanitarian goods worth ten million Yuan.
Hina Rabbani Khar, Pakistan's State Minister of Finance, said, “We have a long relationship with China. China has always come forward whenever Pakistan needs help, in this time of need we really appreciate china.”
The ambassador said that china firmly believes that the courageous people of Pakistan will be able to overcome the current difficulties and rebuild their homes soon.
The floods changed the lives of millions of Pakistanis... they remain hopeless and homeless awaiting assistance. This aid extended by the Peoples Republic of China will help these people bring together the broken pieces of their shattered lives.
