More than two dozen US-based charitable organizations are on the ground in Turkey and the Syrian border to support earthquake victims. The ASH Foundation USA began its relief efforts in Turkey. Over the last three days, hot meals have been organized for 3,000 people daily in Malatya one of the areas affected by the earthquake. It introduced Bangladeshi "Mehmankhana" in Chittagong, organized by the Alhaj Shamsul Haque Foundation, where all hungry people participate regardless of party-like-religion-caste-gender. On February 17th, Foundation Chairmen Nasir Uddin told the Muslim News Network that ten generators were distributed in Turgut, Adina.

The Chairman of the Foundation Engineer, Muhammad Nasir Uddin, monitors all the work directly from the field.

The war in Ukraine has underlined the growing importance of space to armies on the ground. In an interview with the BBC, the head of the US Space Force, General Jay Raymond, describes it as the "first war where commercial space capabilities have really played a significant role". It's also the first major conflict in which both sides have become so reliant on space. Gen Raymond - whose service is the newest branch of the US armed forces - avoids giving precise details of how the US and its allies have been helping Ukraine.
