Turkish Red Crescent sends humanitarian relief to Afghanistan


Half a million people have been displaced in Afghanistan in recent months, according to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi, a number which would grow if health services, schools and the economy break down.

The Turkish Red Crescent, in collaboration with the Pakistan Red Crescent Society and Pak-Afghan Cooperation Forum, has sent a Humanitarian Relief Convoy of 33 tons of Food aid from Pakistan towards Kabul on October 02, 2021 to provide support to 16,000 people for a month.

The Humanitarian Relief was handed over by Mr. Ibrahim Carlos Camilo, the Head of Turkish Red Crescent Delegation to Pakistan, Obaid Ullah Khan, the Pakistan Red Crescent Society Joint Director Operations, and officials from the Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the Torkham Border for further distribution to the neediest people in neighboring Afghanistan.

The Turkish Red Crescent is thankful to all the stakeholders including the Pak-Afghan Cooperation Forum and the government of Pakistan who facilitated the crossover of the Humanitarian Convoy.
