An unidentified Pakistani has won hearts after donating $30 million in the US to aid victims of the deadly earthquake in Turkiye and Syria.
In a visit to the Turkish Embassy in the United States, the individual handed over the money for relief activities just days after Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif urged Pakistanis to help victims in Turkiye and Syria, where more than 24,000 people have died since Monday’s earthquake. The cold weather after the disaster is fading hopes of rescuing many more survivors.
In addition, the Pakistani premier expressed appreciation for the generosity of the anonymous individual. Shehbaz wrote on Twitter: “Deeply moved by the example of an anonymous Pakistani who walked into the Turkish embassy in the US and donated $30 million to earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria”.
Humanity is able to triumph over seemingly insurmountable odds through these acts of philanthropy, he said.
In a telephone conversation earlier in the day, the prime minister assured the Syrian counterpart Hussein Arnous that all possible assistance would be provided to the victims of the Syrian earthquake. As a result of the Syrian earthquake, he expressed deep sorrow for the deaths and destruction.
Besides expressing his condolences to the Syrian Prime Minister’s family, Shehbaz Sharif said the government and people of Pakistan are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of lives in the severe earthquake.
