The second shipment of emergency aid provided by the Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) arrived Wednesday in Afghanistan on board a Qatari Armed Forces plane to support earthquake-hit Afghan people in the provinces of Khost and Paktika.

The shipment contained 13 tonnes of medical aid. This shipment follows aid delivered on June 25 to the affected people in co-operation with Qatar Charity. QFFD reiterated its commitment to support humanitarian needs in Afghanistan, along with its strategic partners to ensure the delivery of relief aid to the people during crises, natural disasters, and conflicts.
