Slovakia helps Pakistan, India and Afghanistan with US$370,000

The Slovak Cabinet has earmarked 12 million koruna (Ђ310,000, US$370,000) for relief efforts in quake-stricken parts of Pakistan, India and Afghanistan.

The government has not yet decided how it will distribute the funds.

Slovakia has also said it will send 10 tons of humanitarian aid, including blankets, water and other needed supplies, the AP reports.

The 7.6-magnitude quake on Saturday demolished whole communities, mostly in the Himalayan region of Kashmir, and many areas remained without aid four days later. The United Nations estimated some 4 million people were affected, including 2 million who lost homes.
