Turkey to send  2 mobile hospitals for Pakistan victims

 

Turkey will send fourth cargo plane that will carry 35 tons of humanitarian aid to Pakistan, authorities said on Tuesday.

Turkey will also send two fully equipped mobile hospitals for victims of Pakistan floods which killed at least 1,600 people over the past three weeks.

Floods triggered by monsoon rains affected northwestern part of the country and left millions homeless.

Turkey's Disaster and Emergency Management Department said that nearly 650,000 homes were damaged or destroyed and tens of villages have been wiped off the map. Pakistani people may face famine as granaries have been destroyed in floods, it said in a statement.

Turkey had earlier sent three cargo planes full of medicine, food, clothing and tents, the statement said, adding that fourth plane would take from Ankara later this evening. Turkey also plans to send two mobile hospitals to Pakistan this weekend, it added.
