    Djibouti has made a monetary donation of $1 million to the Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management (AFAD) and will also deliver a second batch of humanitarian products to people affected by the terrible twin earthquakes that struck Turkey on Thursday night.

    On Thursday, a Turkish Embassy employee in Djibouti told Anadolu over the phone that the Djibouti ambassador to Ankara had made the cash payment to AFAD the day before.

    According to an unidentified official, they are sending 10 generators, six industrial projectors, 113 blankets, 100 pullovers, and 35 warm clothes provided by Djibouti enterprises on Thursday night.

    Djibouti is making its second in-kind donation to Turkey. The first shipment arrived on Tuesday, containing 120 tents, 185 kilograms of clothing, and 75 kilograms of hygiene items.

    He stated that the government and people of Djibouti are totally committed to assisting earthquake victims in Turkey.

    The two severe earthquakes that rattled southern Turkey last week killed at least 36,187 people, according to the AFAD on Thursday.

    More than 13 million people were affected by the magnitude 7.7 and 7.6 earthquakes on February 6 in 11 provinces, including Adana, Adiyaman, Diyarbakir, Gaziantep, Hatay, Kilis, Malatya, Osmaniye, Sanliurfa, and Elazig.
