There’s no denying that India and Pakistan have their share of differences. However, amid the pandemic, our neighbours are standing in solidarity with us and even offering their help where they can. Pakistan’s philanthropist organisation Edhi Welfare Trust has offered to send 50 ambulances along with support staff in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, reports The New Indian Express.
According to Times Now News, the letter stated,
“Our organization understands the gravity of the situation, and we wish to lend our full support, without any inconvenience to you. We are providing the fuel, food, and other necessary amenities that our team will require. Our teams consist of emergency medical technicians, office staff, drivers, and supporting staff.”

As cases in India soar to highest global daily and second highest in total, it is bound to put strain on resources. This is humanity vs the virus. Our battle against covid is also intensifying, but can we share to help our neighbors? #IndiaNeedsOxygen @ImranKhanPTI @SMQureshiPTI

The hashtag #PakistanstandswithIndia represents the best side of Pakistan. We must choose solidarity and empathy over hate and enmity. Only peace and cooperation in our region can help us prepare for existing and coming disasters.

I know #Pakistan is not in a position to offer anything to #India in this pandemic but a silent message from Pakistanis to Indian fellows – #PakistanstandswithIndia is the top trend in Pakistan and you don’t often see such trends here. Om Shanti. Rab Rakha 🙏
