Afghanistan receives humanitarian aid from Pakistan
The first shipment of humanitarian aid encompassing food and medicines has reached Afghanistan, stated Pakistan’s Ambassador to Afghanistan Mansoor Ahmed Khan.
Afghanistan had been cut off from the rest of the world for almost a month after the failure of the previous government and the complete takeover by the Taliban.
The Pakistan Foreign Office had declared that Pakistan will be shipping humanitarian support in food and medicines to Afghanistan via a C-130 aircraft on Thursday.
The Foreign Office further added that supplies would also be sent through the road.
Pakistan’s Ambassador to Afghanistan Mansoor Ahmed Khan announced that the first delivery reached Kabul today.
Afghanistan had been suffering from a lack of food and medicines ever since the Taliban came into power.
Pakistan has sent humanitarian aid to help with the shortage, he said.
In a tweet, Khan informed that the first consignment includes medicines, food, cooking oil, bedding, and other items. He further added that Pakistan will continue to provide relief in Afghanistan through humanitarian assistance.
