China's hospital ship "Peace Ark" leaves a naval base to the Philippines, to assist the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, in Zhoushan Island, Zhejiang Province November 21, 2013. China is sending a hospital ship to the Philippines following foreign and domestic criticism that it was slow and less than generous in its response to one of the world's biggest typhoons, which killed at least 4,000 people. The Foreign Ministry in Beijing confirmed on Tuesday the deployment of the 14,000-tonne "Peace Ark" as state television reported the arrival of the first batch of Chinese relief supplies in the Philippines.
