The UAE has sent a plane carrying 30 tonnes of food and relief supplies to Afghanistan.
It will help meet the immediate basic needs of Afghan families, particularly women and children.
The aid comes in response to the exceptional circumstances the world is currently experiencing, which has exacerbated the living conditions in many countries.
“The UAE is one of the largest donors to Afghanistan to help the country overcome the crises and disasters it has suffered, including natural disasters and wars,” said Issa Salem Al Dhaheri, UAE Ambassador to Afghanistan.
“During the period from September to December 2021, the UAE established a relief airlift of 21 aircraft that carried about 500 tonnes of food and medical supplies to meet the needs of more than half a million people, most of whom are women and children,” he added.
