As efforts continue to assist those affected by the flooding in China this summer, Dragonair is again lending its support to the Hong Kong Red Cross by transporting relief supplies free-of-charge.
On September 19 it will deliver 149 cartons of clothing, worth HK$101,000, to Xian in Shaanxi province. In August and earlier this month Dragonair delivered supplies valued HK$565,500 to Henan and Sichuan.
“We are continuing to work with the Hong Kong Red Cross to make these life-saving deliveries and we encourage other organisations in Hong Kong to keep up their efforts,” said Laura Crampton, Assistant General Manager, Corporate Communication of Dragonair.
This summer`s floods have affected nearly 190 million people. It is estimated that 2.8 million houses and 10 million hectares of farmland have been damaged.
