800MT of rice to Yolanda victims given by China


A cargo vessel containing 800 metric tons of rice was given by the government of China on February 1. The donation was consigned by the National Food Authority. It’s China’s in-kind donation for the typhoon victims.

“This is the latest disaster relief effort made by China after providing in-kind assistance carried by three cargo planes, two medical teams and the hospital ship Peace Ark in 2013,” the embassy said.

Even though the there is an ongoing disagreement with the Philippines about the West Philippine Sea, the government of China is continuously giving out assistance to all Yolanda survivors.

Furthermore, China offered prefabricated houses to the victims.
