Here are @IRWorldwide @IslamicReliefUK @IslamicReliefPK at their best, responding to a quake that is too small, it seems, to register much on Richter scale of international news – but huge for the victims. Great to see @englandcricket star Adil Rashid lending a hand too @TufailH https://t.co/tNblHJjEXd
