The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced the sending of 33 tons of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan.

According to the TASS news agency, the ministry stated on Friday, January 19, stating that this aid includes food supplies.

The statement mentioned that Russia will continue its humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs added that these aids were collected by the Volgograd Regional Public Organization for the “House of Friendship” cultural development initiative.

According to the statement, this shipment of aid from Russia is intended to be delivered to the earthquake victims in Herat.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs also affirmed that this humanitarian action highlights the positive capacity for interaction between governments, including through regional aid structures, to help the people of Afghanistan.

Russia sent this humanitarian aid shipment to the earthquake-stricken Herat region at a time when UNICEF recently announced that 96,000 children affected by the deadly Herat earthquake in winter still require assistance.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) stated in a statement on Monday, that many families are still living under tents despite the severe cold weather.
