Adjust font size:

A cargo of 1,700 tents worth 6 million yuan (US$767,900), donated by the Chinese government, were flown to the Philippines on Monday.


The six-person and 12-person tents can shelter 13,000 people, according to the Chinese Ministry of Commerce.


The tents were among the most urgent needs of the typhoon-ravaged Philippines.


Sources with the Ministry said the Chinese government has donated US$450,000 and goods and materials worth 17 million yuan (US$2.2 million), mainly tents and daily necessities, to aid the Philippines.


Since March last year, the Philippines has been rocked by a series of natural disasters including mud flows, typhoons and floods. The typhoons that buffeted the country between September and November 2006 caused great loss of life and property.
