Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday ordered the establishment of a relief fund to support earthquake victims of Turkiye in the aftermath of a catastrophic earthquake that hit on Monday.

In a tweet, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said the cabinet will donate one month’s salary to the fund.

In a separate tweet, Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique said that a PIA plane will arrive in Istanbul this afternoon with a 51-member rescue team and relief items.

On Monday, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Turkiye and Syria, leaving nearly 5,000 dead and scores of people injured.

PM Shehbaz said the government will send aid to Turkiye in a bid to support the relief and rescue activities in the earthquake-stricken nation.

Meanwhile, quoting sources, Aaj News reported that PM Shehbaz will visit Turkiye soon. Reportedly, preparations for the visit have already begun.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), PM Shehbaz ordered the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) to mobilise all available resources including winterised tents, blankets and other critical life-saving supplies for Turkiye.

“Urban search and rescue teams trained to operate in disaster hit areas are being dispatched with their equipment and medicines. Our mission in Ankara remains in constant touch with the relevant Turkish authorities to identify any additional requirement for the earthquake affected areas,” stated a press release from MOFA.

“Beyond the immediate relief effort, we will continue to work with Turkiye in the post-disaster rehabilitation and reconstruction phases,” MOFA added.

Do they think about weaker countries like Syria whose people don't have the funds to eat. At-least in the case of Turkey 45 countries have offered to help and these Idiots can't send Army there for men power help how are they going to afford it (Relief funds). Their first most priority should be to send the army for help in Syria and than Turkey and as for the relief fund these idiots should focus on Pakistan Flood victims first bunch of hypocrites running the show.
