Lahore, 23rd April: Pakistan’s Edhi Foundation is willing to provide assistance to India against the latest COVID-19 rebound in the country.
Faisal Edhi son of the greatest philanthropist and the founder of Edhi Foundation, Abdul Sattar Edhi wrote to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to offer humanitarian assistance in combating the pandemic situation.
Faisal Edhi’s letter written to the Indian PM states, “We, at the Edhi Foundation, have been closely monitoring the current crisis faced by India due to the COVID-19.”
He added, “We are very sorry to hear about the extremely heavy impact that the pandemic has had on India, where a large number of people are suffering immensely.”
Faisal Edhi sympathized and offered his help to the neighbouring country to tackle their recent crisis, the pictures and videos of which have been going viral for the past couple of days.
Faisal offered Narendra Modi a fleet of 50 ambulances along with Edhi Foundation’s services to assist India in battling the current health conditions.
He further added, “We wish to lend you our full support, without any inconvenience to you, which is why we will arrange all the necessary supplies that our team needs to assist the people of India.”
He clarified that they will be providing the fuel, food, and other necessary amenities to their team themselves and that no assistance from India will be required.
He notified that their team consists of emergency medical technicians, office staff, drivers, and supporting staff.
Faisal asked the Indian government permission to enter India and necessary guidance from their local administration along with the police department as he is willing to deploy his team in any critical area of the country without any hesitation.
Edhi Foundation announced through a press release on Friday that its team of volunteers will leave for India soon after receiving the permission.
It is to be noted that India on Thursday reported 314,835 positive cases in a single day, the highest one-day toll anywhere.
Hospitals across India are facing a huge shortage of oxygen supplies and beds. Heart-wrenching images show patients dying outside the hospital facility on the streets.
