The aid includes emergency medicine, essential drugs, medical supplies, tents, chemicals for disease prevention and control, and medical equipment used in disaster emergency situations.

Later the same day, the Vietnamese delegation coordinated with AFAD to allocate these equipment and other supplies to recipients, including the largest hospital in Adiyaman city.

AFAD deputy director in Adiyaman Isamail Sahin appreciated Vietnam’s aid and expressed his deep thanks for this assistance of the Vietnamese Government and people and the Ministry of Public Security.

This is the first time Vietnam has deployed search and rescue forces in coordination with other countries following a natural disaster./.
