Pakistan Sends Flood Aid to Sri Lanka

Pakistan has sent flood relief supplies worth 11.2 million Pakistani rupees (USD100,000) to Sri Lanka. The aid package includes tents and blankets, the Sri Lanka-based Daily Mirror reports, citing a press release from the Pakistani High Commission in the country.

Despite also struggling to recover from massive floods it experienced last year, Pakistan stands ready to assist its neighbor in responding to the latter’s flooding disaster, which has displaced at least 1 million people, the High Commission office has said.
