ISLAMABAD (APP) - Assisted by local authorities, the 55-member China International Search and Rescue Team has set up a field hospital at Thatta. A spokesman of the Chinese Embassy in Islamabad said Tuesday, the Chinese team has already provided timely and adequate treatment to more than 600 flood victims. The Chinese doctors, mostly female, are mainly experienced dermatologists, gynaecologists and gastrointestinal disease experts who are badly needed by the local patients. Interior Minister Rehman Malik visited the team on August 29 and lauded Chinas relief efforts as saying that China is always the truest and good friend of Pakistan and that the Pak-China friendship will last forever. The Chinese team arrived in Islamabad on August 26 along with 25 tons of high-tech medical equipment and medicines and was immediately transferred to Thatta. China is the first to provide aid when Pakistan was hit by the floods. It is also the first foreign country to have sent a relief team to the worst flood-hit district Thatta in south Pakistan. In addition, the Chinese government also offered relief goods valued at $20 million.
