The UAE has sent 30 tonnes of food to Afghanistan to alleviate the impact of the devastating earthquake.

The move follows the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan to operate a relief air bridge.

The dispatch of aid was coordinated by The Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation and the Emirates Red Crescent in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

The powerful earthquake, the deadliest since 2002, struck Afghanistan early Wednesday, killing 1,500 people and injuring 2,000 more.
