Abu Dhabi: The UAE sent a plane carrying urgent medical and food aid to Afghanistan on Friday, as part of its contribution to provide the necessary needs to thousands of Afghans, especially the most vulnerable groups such as women, children and the elderly.

The urgent assistance comes within the framework of the humanitarian role being played by the UAE to provide full support to brotherly Afghan people in current difficult circumstances, contribute to extending the much-needed support for the Afghan people, as well as to promote the approach of the Founding Father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and in commitment to the wise leadership’s policy of promoting values of giving, tolerance and service to the humanity.

UAE assistance is not limited to humanitarian aid only. A few days ago, and under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, the UAE hosted thousands of Afghan families and provided them with care in the community temporarily, in addition to taking all appropriate actions to provide them with the necessities of a decent life.
