Irrespective of the country, if it is about humanity, human sensibility, India keeps human interest paramount. The way you worked with total dedication after the earthquake in Turkey, facing every challenge, is truly inspiring. This time our daughters went, for the first time and as far as I know… the presence of these daughters instilled confidence in the women’s world there as well.
The local people gathered at the airport thanked the Indian team by giving a round of applause. A similar scene was seen when the medical team of the Indian Army departed in Iskenderun, Turkey. Meanwhile, the Turkish people thanked the doctors and medical staff of the 60 Paira Field Hospital of the Indian Army by clapping their hands.

The field hospital team of NDRF and Army who came to help after the earthquake in Turkey not only saved the lives of hundreds of Turkish people but also treated thousands of injured people. The big thing is that the Indian team did not depend on the Turkish government for help. The Indian team that went for help took all kinds of things with them.
While medical supplies were also sent daily from India. Turkish people reached the airport to thank the Indian team for this selfless spirit of service and thanked Talio Vagadi. This exciting video at the airport is currently going viral on social media.
When Turkey was devastated by the earthquake, India was the first to send rescue and relief operations. The Indian government established an army field hospital in Turkey within 24 hours.
