Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has set-up a special relief fund for the quake-hit people of Nepal, a top official said on Sunday.

Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry told a news conference in Islamabad that Pakistanis at home and abroad are sending the contributions to the fund.

A senior official of the country's disaster management said Pakistan has planned to spend three to four million dollars of aid for the relief activities in Nepal.

Pakistan has already sent six transport C-130s flights loaded with initial relief consignments including tents, medicines and food items to Kathmandu.

A 30-bed mobile hospital of Pakistan with 50 doctors is also working in Kathmandu.

Aizaz Chaudhry said Pakistan Army's special teams also closely coordinated in the search and relief operations in quake-hit areas of Nepal, adding that the Nepalese chief of army staff has visited one of the Pakistani relief camps and lauded Pakistan relief operations.

Nepalese Ambassador to Pakistan Bharat Raj Paudyal said they are grateful to the government and people of Pakistan for generous support extended at this difficult time.

He said 35 districts of Nepal have been badly hit by the 7.9 magnitude earthquake on April 25.
