China to send disaster relief goods worth USD 2.2 million

The Chinese Government announced it will donate emergency humanitarian disaster relief goods worth a total amount of RMB 15 million (about 2.2 million US dollars) to the Sri Lankan people who were affected by floods and landslides.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang sent condolence messages to President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe respectively on the tragic loss of life and property following the heavy rains that led to severe floods and landslides recently.

On behalf of the Government and people of the People’s Republic of China, the Chinese leaders extended sympathy and condolences to the Leaders, Government and people of Sri Lanka.

The Chinese Government will give full support to the disaster relief operations of the Sri Lankan Government.

“We believed that under the leadership of the Sri Lankan Government, Sri Lankan people will surely conquer the disaster and rebuild the homes at the earliest date possible,” the Chinese Embassy in Colombo said.

The relief goods from China, which will be sent to Colombo by a Chartered flight soon, includes tents, blankets, sheets, rain boots and life jackets urgently needed by Sri Lanka.

Meanwhile, the Red Cross Society of China also granted US $ 100,000 emergency humanitarian cash assistance to the Sri Lanka Red Cross Society for their disaster relief efforts.

Chinese enterprises and overseas Chinese in Sri Lanka will also try their best to help the disaster affected people through donation and other ways. (Colombo Gazette)
