The South Korean government will send the first batch of flood aid to help the North on Sept. 15.
In an official letter sent through the South Korean Red Cross, Seoul said it will send 200,000 packets of baby food.
Unless Pyongyang shows strong opposition to the idea, these items will be delivered to flood-stricken areas in the North Korean provinces of Hwanghae and Kangwon gradually, once or twice a week until mid-October.
The total amount of aid is worth W5 billion which includes items such as biscuits, instant noodles, and rice-based baby food (US$1=W1,075).
