Pakistan

According to the "Hindu" newspaper, India has now pledged $5 million in aid. AFAIK this is so far more than anywhere else other than USA.

IMO: The thanks India gets is Pakistani rockets fired at Indian cities, also bombs and other ISI sabotage, like the recent Pune attacks and the Taj Mahal hotel attack. As I have said, if you do send aid only send it to person who actually needs it as directly as you can, and not through some government agency. Even then there is some risk of diversion or confiscation. Sending aid to Pakistan at the moment can be a bit like the UK sending aid to Nazi Germany in the middle of World War 2.
