China announced on Wednesday that it will provide relief and cash assistance to Pakistan, affected by flash floods and property destruction, which have left lakhs marooned since mid-June.

A statement issued by China’s Foreign Ministry said Beijing has decided to “provide emergency humanitarian supplies, including 25,000 tents and other supplies in dire need, to be delivered as soon as possible.”

“The Red Cross Society of China will provide $300,000 in emergency cash assistance to the Pakistan Red Crescent Society,” the statement added.

The statement said China has already delivered 4,000 tents, 50,000 blankets, and 50,000 pieces of waterproof canvas to the victims under the social and livelihood cooperation framework of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
