Pakistan donates rice to flood-stricken Chinese province / by Chen Boyuan,September 26, 2017 Adjust font size:

A Pakistani military transport aircraft carrying 22 tons of rice arrived at Wuhan airport in central China's Hubei Province late on Aug. 22. It was the first batch of the country's planned donation of 10,000 tons of rice to the flood-stricken province.

The Pakistani government's decision to make donations to China came in the wake of six rounds of torrential rains that hit Hubei. From June 18 to July 31, torrents and subsequent floods caused damage to 98 county-level prefectures in the province, affecting 17.85 million people, 1.55 million of which have been evacuated to temporary settlements.

After the first delivery of rice by air, the subsequent donations will be shipped by water to the local port, said a local newspaper.
