A transport plane left Berlin Schönefeld airport on Wednesday to bring 70 tonnes of aid to the 11 million people affected by typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines. According to the German Red Cross, the plane carrying tents, cookware, hygiene equipment and construction tools is expected to land on Cebu.
Red Cross and national aid group Technisches Hilfswerk dispatched the plane along with two portable drinking water treatment plants and lab equipment that will analyse water samples in the affected regions.
The German government has earlier pledged €1m and delivered 25 tonnes of supplies to the country.
The German Red Cross is still appealing for donations to the typhoon-ravaged areas in the Philippines. Donations for the cause can be made here.
