Taiwan sends more relief supplies to tsunami victims in the West

The Embassy of the Republic of China(Taiwan)in Solomon Islands has mobilized a Taiwanese carrier boat Yuh Fa no. 201 to send relief supplies to Gizo for the Tsunami stricken people today.

Due to lack of transport for relief supplies which can not be loaded on domestic aircrafts, the Embassy of Republic of China(Taiwan) decided to send a carrier boat to carry supplies to Gizo besides sending a 3-person medical team from TaiwanIHA with medical kits on Sunday, 8 April.

The carrier boat managed by Manager Tristan Lin has been piloted by Captain Sung out of Honiara port at 2:30pm yesterday.

The boat got supplies onboard including 150 bags of rice and vegetables donated by the Taiwan Technical Mission(TTM) (handed over by Specialist Michael Hsu and Assistant Kent Hung)and 500 cartons of noodles and tuna cans raised by the Solomon Islands Chinese Association.

Yuh Fa no. 201 will be arriving at Gizo at 9:00 tomorrow morning. Mr. Norman Tsai, another Specialist from the TTM, will coordinate with Solomon Islands Red Cross Society in Gizo to distribute the relief goods.
