The European Union delivered medicine and nutrition to Afghanistan via the EU Humanitarian Air Bridge earlier today.
This humanitarian aid comes at a time when nearly 28 million populations in Afghanistan need assistance in the next year. The humanitarian cargo is provided by the European Union Protection & Humanitarian Aid and trusted humanitarian partners.
Due to the existing socio-economic and humanitarian crisis, thousands of Afghan families are struggling for survival across the country. They need basic food, shelter, and other life-saving items. Such aid packages are of paramount importance to the general public as they are provided with no other alternatives. Meanwhile, the harsh winter is another addition to the many challenges of the ordinary people in the country as they need to feed their mouths and heat their homes respectively.
Afghanistan receives this humanitarian aid package right after the first public execution was conducted by the ruling regime in Farah, Afghanistan since they came to power last year. There have been massive reactions and criticisms of the act from the international community, independent organizations, countries, media, and more.
Likewise, the European Union in Afghanistan condemned the act and called on the Afghan administration to stop any future executions and instead pursue a policy towards the abolition of capital punishment.
While the group’s supreme leader in a meeting with the judges in November issued a verdict, ordering to pursue the strict Sharia laws and exercising public punishment, including public executions, public amputations, and stoning.
