Turkey collects nearly $133 mln in Pakistan aid campaigns

More than 194 million Turkish Liras have been collected in three separate aid campaigns launched in Turkey in an effort to help flood-hit Pakistan.

More than 194 million Turkish Liras (TL) (nearly 133 million USD) have been collected in three separate aid campaigns launched in Turkey in an effort to help flood-hit Pakistan.

According to a statement released by the Turkish Directorate General for Disaster and Emergency Management on Tuesday, a total of 194,144,000 TL have been collected in the aid campaigns launched by Turkey's Prime Ministry, Directorate General of Religious Affairs and Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT) as of October 26.

Floods triggered by heavy monsoon rains have scoured Pakistan's Indus river basin, killing thousands of people, forcing millions from their homes and disrupting the lives of about 20 million people this summer.

So far, Turkey has sent an 10 million USD financial aid and 244 tons of relief support that included vaccines, medicine, medical stuff. Turkey has also sent a 42-member medical team, two fully equipped mobile hospitals, an ambulance, and a 4x4 truck for medical rescue efforts.
