Pakistan provided the people of Afghanistan with another consignment of humanitarian aid that was crossed through the Torkham crossing point in the east of Afghanistan.

This was the first tranche of assistance relief crossed from Pakistan through the land on Sunday, September 19.

A statement released by the Pakistani embassy in Kabul reads that the aid which was loaded in 13 trucks include, flour, cooking oil, rice, pulses, and sugar.

As per the statement, additional four trucks are intended to cross the crossing point and the aid dispatched will be distributed to people in need in various provinces.

Earlier, Pakistan had dispatched tonnes of food ingredients and medicines through the air to Kabul, Kandahar province, and Khost province.

The country intends to send another tranche of blankets this time as the winter season is getting closer in Afghanistan.

After the Taliban takeover, Afghanistan is in a humanitarian crisis and desperately needs assistance relieves as such.

The international community has pledged $1.2 billion in humanitarian aid to the people of Afghanistan that was welcomed by the Taliban authorities.
