SUVA, March 16-- The Chinese embassy in Vanuatu on Monday handed over the humanitarian assistance of 100,000 U.S. dollars from the Red Cross Society of China to the Vanuatu Red Cross.

While handing over the assistance to Jacqueline Deroin de Gaillande, CEO of the Vanuatu Red Cross, Li Cuiying, charge d' affaires of the Chinese embassy, said severe Tropical Cyclone Pam has caused massive property damage and loss of lives in Vanuatu, which has China's profound sympathy and sincere condolences.
