ISLAMABAD - As Pakistan waits for a response from international community and donor organisations, China has immediately donated additional 50 million RMB (Chinese yen) bringing total Chinese relief aid to more than RMB 70 million to the flood-affected Pakistani people. It is pertinent to mention here that China is itself battling critical floods and landslides in a part of its north-western Gansu province, however, they did not forget to help its Pakistani brothers and sisters. Briefing the media men during a press conference that was called on a short notice on Friday, Ambassador of China to Pakistan Liu Jian said that new aid was aimed to provide daily essentials for the people ravaged by the landslide in Pakistans Hunza area. China is one of the first countries providing immediate aid to Pakistan in the aftermath of the floods. The Chinese government, Peoples Liberation Army, and the Red Cross Society have respectively donated RMB 10 million, RMB 10 million and 50,000 US dollars either in material or in cash recently. Chinese diplomats, companies, and individuals in Pakistan also made voluntary donations. Meanwhile on Friday, Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi chaired a meeting of Red Crescent and Red Cross Societies. The meeting was attended by the Secretary General, International Federation of Red Crescent and Red Cross (IFRC), Bekele Gelata. In the meeting, a strategy to help the flood affectees in Pakistan was discussed. It was agreed that IFRC shall increase its commitment of support, from initial 50,000 families to 300,000 families. The support would include immediate relief, health support, shelter and water sanitation etc. During the meeting, the contours of an extensive international campaign were also discussed. It was agreed that IFRC would focus on international humanitarian organisations and the general public for donations to help flood affectees. It was also agreed that IFRC would act through Pakistan Red Crescent, which, in turn, would work closely with the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA). It will be ensured that there would be no duplication of aid efforts in any area. It was also agreed that the IFRC would increase public appeals for contributions. Such appeals have so far been made in Australia, Canada, Korea, New Zealand, Norway and Sweden.
