Kabul [Afghanistan], July 13 (ANI): A new European Humanitarian Air Bridge flight has delivered close to 100 tonnes of life-saving medical equipment and supplies to Afghanistan, Khaama Press reported citing a statement from the EU Delegation in Afghanistan.
The EU Charge d’Affaires to Afghanistan at the time, Raffaella Iodice, said, “This is solidarity in action: Today, we welcomed the arrival of nearly 100 tonnes of medical supplies and medications to Afghanistan.
“Our EU Humanitarian Air Bridge flights are a good example of the EU’s assistance to the country: In cooperation with trusted humanitarian partners, the EU continues delivering vital aid to Afghans in need,” he added, according to Khaama Press.
The European Humanitarian Response Capacity (EHRC) includes flights operated by the EU Humanitarian Air Bridge.
These flights, which are funded and run by the EU Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG ECHO) division, assist in bridging significant humanitarian and emergency aid gaps within the EU. Khaama Press reported.
Prior to this, the EU sent nearly 100 tonnes of essential goods and medical supplies to Afghanistan via the EU Humanitarian Air Bridge flight.
Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan in August 2021, the situation of people in Afghanistan has only deteriorated as the country is under a massive grip of a humanitarian crisis.
Moreover, the situation of women in the country has only got worse.
Women in the country are prohibited from leadership posts, and not allowed to work as well as travel unless accompanied by a male companion. There is still no word on when or if these schools will reopen or if the ban is indefinite. (ANI)
