SPAIN'S government has sent out two aircraft containing 15 tonnes of aid material for the victims of the recent floods in Pakistan.

This mostly comprises parts for re-installing the water supply, medication and food.

Secretary of State for International Cooperation, Soraya Rodríguez (pictured), has announced the shipping of goods amassed by various charities across the country to help those most in need after the country was devastated by a monsoon.

The first plane went out on August 5, and the second went out today from Madrid.

Aid material will be handed out via various charities based in Pakistan, due to difficulties in distribution in the country.

Spain has invested around 5.8 million euros in helping the flood victims.
