Pakistan delivers the first shipment of aid goods to flood-stricken Afghans

On Saturday, a Pakistan Air Force special aircraft delivered the first consignment of relief supplies to flood-stricken Afghans, following the directions of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. The package was intended for people impacted by the floods in Afghanistan.

Tents, wheat, rice, and sugar are among the supplies being distributed. The second batch of relief supplies will be delivered on April 9.

In his remarks, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif stated that Pakistan would make every effort to assist the Afghans who had been devastated by the flood.

Meanwhile, in a separate news release, Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar Ahmad stated that a C-130 jet carrying emergency assistance materials for the people of Afghanistan who have been affected by flash floods had arrived in Mazar-i-Sharif as a result of the Prime Minister’s instructions.

It was his assertion that Pakistan had been at the forefront of efforts to provide humanitarian help to the Afghan people because it was a neighboring country.

The spokesperson expressed the hope that the international community will also take an active role in giving timely relief and economic aid to the people of Afghanistan who have been harmed by the conflict.
