In the wake of the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, the international community has come together to provide support and assistance to those affected by the disaster.
One such gesture of kindness has come from a Pakistani businessman who donated $30 million towards relief efforts in the affected areas.
This generous donation will undoubtedly help alleviate the suffering of those who have been impacted by the earthquakes.
The Turkish-American associations and consulates in the USA are also playing a critical role in providing relief to the affected areas.
They are working in an organized manner to send supplies and monetary donations to the earthquake-stricken regions.
Turkish Ambassador to the United States, Murat Mercan, is conducting collaborative work with the heads of Turkish-American associations via zoom to coordinate the efforts effectively.
In addition to providing immediate relief, the Turkish-American associations are planning to establish temporary hospitals in the earthquake-affected regions.
The Illinois-based Turkish-American Association TACA has created an ‘Earthquake relief fund’ to collect donations to help with the relief efforts.
Shortly after the earthquake, the organization received donations of $100-150 thousand, and with the businessman’s donation of $30 million, the association will be able to deliver collected supplies and monetary donations to the disaster area with the organization of the Turkish embassy.
The identity of the Pakistani businessman, who donated generously, has been kept anonymous. According to TRT, the Pakistani national walked into the Turkish embassy and made the donation but nobody knows who he is.

The donations and support from the international community demonstrate the power of collective action in times of crisis and the importance of providing assistance to those in need.
