Under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the State, “may God protect him”, an air bridge carrying integrated food baskets and basic medical supplies began, along with a medical team and a field hospital.

Sending aid comes in light of the UAE’s continuous follow-up to the current situation in Afghanistan and its effective contribution to alleviating the repercussions of the devastating earthquake that struck southeast Afghanistan recently, leaving thousands of victims and injured and resulting in a shortage of food and medicine needs for a large segment of the population of the earthquake area. Especially from Afghan families, the elderly, children and women.
