Taipei, Dec. 2 (CNA) Taiwan-based manufacturing giant Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. has donated 556 tents and 1,188 sleeping bags to Indonesia to help with relief efforts after a powerful earthquake struck near Cianjur in West Java on Nov. 21.

The essential materials worth NT$5 million (US$ 163,790) arrived at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in late November and were given to Indonesian authorities, which will ensure they are distributed to those in need, Hon Hai, also known as Foxconn on the global market, said in a statement Friday.

"Indonesia is an important partner of Hon Hai. In addition to sharing, cooperating and co-prospering, the two sides will support each other to overcome any difficulties," Hon Hai Chairman Liu Young-way (劉揚偉) was quoted as saying in the release.

The magnitude 5.6 earthquake killed more than 300 people and left thousands injured, with over 60,000 homes destroyed in Cianjur and the surrounding region, according to international media reports.
