On March 18, 2011, the Chinese Government announced that it would provide emergency humanitarian assistance to the Government of Tunisia to assist Libyan refugees. The aid package consisted of $2 million USD of cash assistance (captured by this project) and RMB 30.3 million ($4.6 million USD) of relief supplies (captured by linked project ID#85289). The relief supplies included food, tents, medicine, blankets, and generators (see 'China offers humanitarian aid to Tunisia, Egypt').The Chinese Government provided two batches of humanitarian aid. The first batch of aid to Tunisia was sent on a chartered China Southern Airlines flight on April 7, 2011. It consisted of 93 tons of relief materials, including 1,500 tents and about 20 tons of medicine (see 'China’s First Batch of Emergency Humanitarian Aid for Tunisia Shipped'). The second batch was sent on a chartered China Southern Airlines flight on April 9, 2011. It consisted of 97 tons of relief materials, including 1,000 sets of solar-powered lights, 23,000 blankets, 25 tons of food, and 2 tons of medicine. According to MOFCOM, as of April 10, 2011, all relief supplies had been shipped (see 'China’s Second Batch of Emergency Humanitarian Aid for Tunisia Shipped').
