President of the European Union Ursula Von der Leyen on Wednesday, September 29 said that they have allocated US$ 348.2 million in humanitarian aid for the people of Afghanistan.

Leyen on her Twitter post wrote that the EU is standing by the people of Afghanistan and added that the EU’s flight brought aids to Afghanistan.

In the meantime, the EU commissioner for crisis management Janez Lenarcic has said that they have delivered 32 tonnes of humanitarian aids to Afghanistan.

Lenarcic has added that the aid will be distributed by UNICEF and WHO to the people who are most affected by conflicts and cholera in Afghanistan.

Prior to that, the UN’s Central Emergency Response Fund released US$45 million to help prevent the collapse of Afghanistan’s health sector.

The humanitarian aid comes at a time when the people of Afghanistan are grappling with a looming humanitarian crisis and they are in desperate need of relief assistance.

Yesterday, China’s first consignment of humanitarian aid arrived in Kabul and is intended to be distributed by the ministry of refugees and repatriates in Afghanistan.
