The Edhi Foundation has provided Modi with a fleet of 50 ambulances and the services of its employees in order to assist India in managing the country’s coronavirus crisis, which is worsening by the day. Pakistanis are now pleading with Prime Minister Imran Khan to assist the neighbouring country.
Because of the increasing number of coronavirus cases in the world, India’s health system is in disarray. Several hospitals have run out of oxygen to treat people infected with the coronavirus. As a result, many people are dying as a result of the outbreak.
On Friday, India had the world’s largest regular count of coronavirus cases for the second day in a row. Furthermore, COVID-19-related daily deaths increased to an all-time high. India’s cumulative caseload has now surpassed 16 million with the addition of 332,730 new cases. The number of deaths in the last 24 hours has also risen to a staggering 2,263, according to the health ministry.
The Edhi Foundation expressed its condolences to India and offered PM Modi ambulances and assistance during this tough period.
Faisal Edhi, the son of philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi, provided assistance in the form of “a fleet of 50 ambulances as well as our services to assist you in tackling, and further circumventing, the latest health conditions.” Furthermore, Faisal personally volunteered to direct and oversee his organization’s humanitarian team, according to the letter.

Edhi’s bid sought Modi’s support in obtaining permission to reach India and coordinating with local authorities. The Indian government, however, did not respond immediately. It is uncertain if the idea would be taken seriously, given that Pakistan barred travellers from India earlier this week due to widespread coronavirus infection.
