In the wake of a devastating earthquake that struck the eastern Mediterranean region, India has launched a humanitarian aid mission called “Operation Dost” to assist the affected populations in Turkey and Syria. The earthquake, which struck on October 30, 2021, claimed the lives of over 200 people and left thousands homeless.
The Indian government, along with various non-governmental organizations, sprang into action to provide relief and assistance to the quake-hit regions. India dispatched a team of disaster relief specialists and deployed a naval ship loaded with essential supplies, including tents, food, medicine, and other necessities. The team arrived in Turkey and Syria within days of the earthquake, bringing much-needed support to the affected populations.
In addition to providing immediate relief and assistance, Operation Dost also aims to strengthen the existing ties between India and the affected countries. India has a long history of providing humanitarian aid and support to countries in need, and Operation Dost is a testament to its commitment to this tradition.
The Indian government and non-governmental organizations have been working tirelessly to provide aid to the affected populations in Turkey and Syria. In addition to providing essential supplies, the teams on the ground have been working to provide medical care, shelter, and support to the displaced populations. They have set up mobile medical clinics and distributed food and water to the affected populations.
The response to Operation Dost has been overwhelmingly positive, with the affected populations expressing their gratitude for the assistance provided by India. The aid mission has received widespread praise from international organizations and governments, who have praised India’s commitment to providing aid and support to those in need.
The earthquake in the eastern Mediterranean region was one of the largest to strike the region in years, and its impact has been felt by millions of people. The aid provided by India through Operation Dost has been critical in helping the affected populations to recover and rebuild their lives.
