China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC) told Xinhua that the third batch of humanitarian aid to Japan was sent on Thursday to support the country's disaster relief work.

This last batch of relief materials included 10,000 pairs of thick rubber gloves, 60 portable toilets and 25,000 pairs of sports shoes.

The MOC said that all relief materials sent so far came to a total of 30 million yuan (4.58 million U.S. dollars).

The Chinese government sent Japan the first batch of relief materials, including blankets, tents and emergency lights on March 14, three days after the massive earthquake and tsunami hit Japan.
