The first batch of relief supplies donated by the Shenzhen Municipal Party Committee and government to the "Morakot"-affected region in southern Taiwan is loaded onto ships on August 17 in Yantian Port in Shenzhen, and transported to Kaohsiung Harbor in Taiwan.

The 1,000 temporary plank houses donated by the Shenzhen Municipal Party Committee and government are worth 20 million yuan, and will be transported to Taiwan in batches. The plank houses are currently in the process of intense manufacturing by workers from Shenzhen Yazhi Integral Building Stock Co., Ltd. to provide shelter for stricken Taiwanese compatriots as soon as possible.

China-based COSCO Group and Taiwan-based Yang Ming Marine Transport Corporation, which will jointly manage the shipment, said that they will transport the relief materials to Taiwanese compatriots free of charge. China's Ministry of Transport said that it will open green channels to ship the relief supplies, and provide convenient and effective services.

After southern Taiwan was badly hit by typhoon "Morakot", Chinese mainland citizens were deeply concerned. Over the past few days, people from all walks of life on the Chinese mainland have been eagerly donating cash and relief supplies to help their compatriots in Taiwan.
