ISLAMABAD: The Tur­k­ish Cooperation and Coor­dination Agency (TIKA) has provided 60 tonnes of wheat seeds to farmers in most affected districts of Sindh.

The eight districts are: Badin, Mirpurkhas, Umer­kot, Matiari, Sanghar, Shah­eed Benazirabad (Nawab­shah), Dadu and Khairpur.

The TIKA has said it will continue to carry out development and cooperation projects that will strengthen relations with Pakistan.

In a related development, the JICA Pakistan office has provided 12,500 certified wheat seed bags to the flood-affected farmers in five districts of Balochistan — Na­­s­irabad, Jaffarabad, Soubat­pur, Jhal Magsi and Kacchi.

JICA hired the services of Taraqee Foundation, a local organisation in Balochistan, for quick assessment of 2,500 affected farmer families.

The cooperation will not only ensure the future availability of wheat as essential food item for food security but will also improve livelihood of 2,500 farmer families.
