Turkish actor Celal Al, who plays Abdurrahman Alp in Dirilis: Ertugrul, has urged his followers to donate to flood victims around Pakistan via Turkish Red Crescent by texting “Pakistan” to 2868.

Taking to his Instagram on Monday, Celal shared a video clip of himself in Karachi, talking to his followers about the floods in Pakistan and how he and the team from Red Crescent are on ground to help people affected by the floods.

“Pakistan, Karachi. We are taking your [donations] to the affected people. You can also help by texting Pakistan [to] 2868,” he wrote.

If you want to donate, here is an extensive list of organisations accepting donations and working to aid people affected by the floods.

As of Monday the floodwaters flowing from Manchar Lake continued to wreak havoc in Dadu district as another village, Mian Yaar Mohammad Kalhoro, was also submerged, with officials warning that more villages were facing a threat of inundation.

The actor first visited Pakistan early last year, winning hearts of many with his charitable work for the people of Pakistan through the Omair-Sana Foundation (OSF) and Children’s Hospital Karachi. He also appreciated the scenic beauty of Islamabad.

During his visit, he also met Adnan Siddiqui and Humayun Saeed. His visit brought a gift for fans — the first ever Pak-Turk collaboration for a TV show.
