Karachi – On Tuesday, two more Turkish planes carrying tents, food, medicine, and other relief supplies for flood victims in Pakistan landed in Karachi.

The Turkish Relief and Disaster Agency plans to build a tent village for 400 affected families in the Badin district of southern Sindh province, complete with kitchen and hygiene kits and other amenities. The Turkish Red Crescent has already arrived in southwestern Balochistan, one of the worst-affected provinces, to provide clean water and food to thousands of flood-affected people.

The most destructive monsoon spells in recent Pakistani history, combined with raging floods, have ripped away mountainsides, ripped off building foundations, and inundated over 70 districts, turning them into inland rivers. According to the country’s National Disaster Management Authority, nearly 1,200 people have died and over a million homes have been destroyed or damaged since mid-June.

Constant rains and raging floods have also destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure and agricultural lands, as well as hundreds of roads and bridges, and have washed away nearly a million animals. According to Pakistan’s Meteorological Department, the South Asian country, which is one of the top ten most vulnerable to climate change, has received more than 200% more rain this year than average monsoon showers.
