Kyrgyzstan authorities have stepped forward to extend a helping hand to earthquake victims in Afghanistan. According to local media reports, they pledged to deliver 100 tons of food aid.
The Ministry of Emergency Situations in Kyrgyzstan is leading this humanitarian effort. Their plan includes sending 75 tons of flour, 20 tons of sugar, 5 tons of sunflower oil, 500 beds and an equal number of warm blankets and mattresses.
The assistance goes beyond necessities, as women and children in Afghanistan will also benefit from winter clothes, shoes, toys, and essential personal hygiene products. This support is valued at 1 million soms, approximately USD 11,200.
Kyrgyzstan’s gesture of solidarity highlights its commitment to aiding neighbouring Afghanistan during times of crisis. The collaboration underscores the importance of international cooperation in addressing humanitarian emergencies.
The earthquake victims in Afghanistan will find relief in the provisions sent by Kyrgyzstan, which will address their immediate food and shelter needs and help them stay warm during the harsh winter months.
This initiative is made possible through the allocation of funds by the International Civil Defense Organization, demonstrating the global community’s collective effort to provide aid and support to those in need.
