China will provide humanitarian aid worth 60 million yuan ($9.2 million) to earthquake-hit Ecuador, the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said, following cash support of 2 million dollars announced on April 21.
The latest batch of aid will be in the form of disaster relief facilities and materials, which will be sent to Ecuador by chartered flight, the MOC said.
The Red Cross Society of China will send teams to Ecuador to assist the distribution and installation of these materials and facilities.
The Chinese Government will continue to provide support according to the development of the situation and Ecuador's needs, the MOC said.
Ecuador was hit by the 7.8-magnitude earthquake on April 16. The death toll has risen to more than 650.
