Apple CEO Tim Cook has confirmed that the company will donate to flood relief and recovery efforts in Pakistan and surrounding areas where glacial melt and increased monsoon activity have caused deadly floods.
According to a source, He said, “the floods in Pakistan and surrounding areas are devastating humanitarian disasters. Our thoughts are with those that have lost loved ones, the many displaced families, and all those affected. Apple will donate to relief and recovery efforts on the ground.”
In a Tweet on Wednesday, Tim Cook offered Apple’s support for the region.
At the height of the flooding, a third of Pakistan — an area the size of Wyoming — was underwater, according to NBC News. The flooding has killed over a thousand people and displaced half a million others.
