EU Delivers 150 Tonnes of Humanitarian Aid to Afghanistan

This week a total of 5 EU Humanitarian Air Bridge flights
are delivering 150 metric tonnes of life-saving medical cargo to Afghans
affected by the dire humanitarian situation in the country.

In addition, the EU co-funded via the EU Civil Protection
Mechanism—a repatriation flight operated by France to assist more than 300
people to leave Afghanistan last weekend, including French, Dutch and Afghan
citizens.

The cargo consists of medical equipment provided by Action
Against Hunger, Care International, Emergency, the German Red Cross, Medair,
Premiere Urgence, Save the Children, UNICEF and the World Health Organization.

It comes on top of earlier EU-funded flights this year that
delivered over 130 metric tonnes of life-saving surgical equipment and medical
supplies. EU Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection operations are closely
interlinked in providing vital assistance to Europeans and people who find
themselves in crises worldwide.
