The Afghanistan Red Crescent has announced that another 500-ton aid shipment from Turkey has been delivered to the earthquake-stricken province of Herat, coinciding with the presence of the Turkish ambassador, who handed it over to local officials in the province.

On Sunday, the Afghanistan Red Crescent reported that 508 tons of Turkish aid materials had reached the province of Herat through the Torghundi port.

According to the organization, these aid deliveries were handed over to government officials in Herat province in the presence of the Turkish ambassador, acting on behalf of the Turkish government.

The provided assistance includes essential items such as food, clothing, spices, hygiene products, blankets, and tents.

During the handover ceremony, the Taliban officials announced that out of these aid packages, 300 tons would be distributed to the earthquake victims in Herat, while the remaining 200 tons would be allocated to recent returnees from neighbouring countries.

Turkey has previously contributed humanitarian aid to the people of Herat following the devastating earthquake. This marks the eighth aid shipment from Turkey to assist the earthquake-affected residents of Herat.

These aid deliveries from Turkey to Afghanistan come as recent reports state that Turkey plans to strengthen its friendly relations with Afghanistan through its TİKA (Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency), Maarif, and the Turkish Red Crescent. They also plan to provide specialized medical care for Afghans shortly.

The ongoing support from Turkey underscores their commitment to assisting Afghanistan during times of crisis and their efforts to enhance ties and humanitarian assistance with Afghanistan.
