KARACHI: In ongoing relief efforts, China has donated 3,000 tents for Sindh flood affectees on Friday.
China sent the tents via four air crafts to Pakistan.
The Chinese Counsel General handed over these tents to Provincial Disaster Management Director at the Karachi airport for distribution among flood affectees.
The Chinese Counsel General said his country will always stand with Pakistan in difficult times.
While efforts continue to tackle the catastrophe, flood affectees in lower and central Sindh have protested against the shortage of basic necessities including food, medicines and clean drinking water.
People from several districts protested against the shortage of aid and the government's inability to drain flood waters from several villages in Sindh. Police have reportedly baton charged people protesting the ineffective and insufficient aid.
A shutter down strike is also being observed in the southern town of Kunri.
Standing waters in several areas have started to spread diseases and many people have been infected with gastroenteritis, malaria and skin related diseases.
Snake bites and water borne diseases are also common. Shortage of portable water is forcing people to drink flood water.
