China's Humanitarian Aid

Sep 21, 2016

On April 25, 2015, a devastating earthquake struck Nepal, causing thousands of casualties and massive destruction. China was amongst the first countries to respond by providing emergency relief materials worth 140 million RMB (US$22.6 million), and sending rescue teams and medical staff. China is playing an increasingly important role in international humanitarian affairs. Today, one month after the Nepal earthquake, UNDP China takes a close look at China’s humanitarian aid, including its volume, forms and mechanism, and identifies two major trends in China’s humanitarian aid.
