A Turkish child, moved by scenes of death and destruction from recent unprecedented rains and floods in large swathes of Pakistan, has donated 50 Liras to the relief fund set up for the flood-affected people of the country, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.

In a letter to Pakistan’s ambassador in his country, he has expressed his deep sorrow and grief over the loss of life and property in worst floods in the country’s history.
