ISLAMABAD            -          To help the slums 20 kilometers away from here overcoming COVID-19 epidemic, Yang Xiaolong, a Chinese motorcyclist led a group of Chinese travellers to donate supplies to sulms in Pakistan.

According to Gwadar Pro, Yang Xiaolong is a Chinese globetrotter and a planner of the China-Pakistan friendship travel. He has organized motorcycle teams many times to ride along the KKH from China to Pakistan.
