Islamabad, 12 October 2021 (TDI): Pakistan has sent thirteen more trucks carrying humanitarian aid to Afghanistan. Tt is is carried under Pakistan-Afghanistan Cooperation Forum. The humanitarian aid reached Afghanistan via Torkham border and was received by Arsalah Khan Kharoti.
Pakistan’s assistance to Afghanistan is not just limited to sending in humanitarian aid but Pakistan has also urged the international community to engage with the Taliban-led government to minimize the possibility of an emerging humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.
The food crisis in Afghanistan is going rampant. Pakistan is putting serious efforts in this regard. Meanwhile, the Turkish Red Crescent is also involved in providing food to the internally displaced people of Afghanistan. It will send the aid from Pakistan to Kabul which would provide food for 16000 people in a month.
Pakistan’s benevolence was reciprocated by a handing over ceremony. Pakistan has remained at the forefront in providing humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan after the US withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021.
