Turkish “AFAD” continues to set up tents for the afflicted in Pakistan


Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD) continues to erect tents to shelter flood-affected people in Pakistan.


AFAD teams continue to distribute and set up tents in the areas affected by the torrential rains.

He pointed out that 20 tents have been set up in Mirpur Khas in Sindh province and 50 food parcels have been distributed to the needy as part of the ongoing relief activities in the region.

He pointed out that AFAD has distributed thousands of tents in the region, and that it aims to distribute more than 100,000 tents in flood-affected areas across Pakistan.

Since the floods swept large areas in Pakistan last June, Ankara has sent at least 12 planes, 4 trains and dozens of trucks loaded with aid to those affected, according to Turkish official statements.


The catastrophic floods have killed 1,391 people since June 14, according to Pakistan’s National Disaster Management Authority.
