BEIJING, May 30 (Xinhua) -- China will provide 15 million yuan (2.28 million U.S. dollars) worth of emergency supplies, including tents and folding beds, to help with flood relief in Sri Lanka, the Ministry of Commerce said on Monday.

The relief supplies will be sent to Sri Lanka via charter flights, according to a statement on the ministry's website.

The move came after the ministry committed 1.5 million U.S. dollars in cash on Friday to help with the relief work.

Continuous rain and gales have caused floods, mud-rock flows in Sri Lanka, leaving nearly 100 people dead and over 500,000 affected.
