An EU Humanitarian Air Bridge flight arrived in Kabul on Wednesday carrying a shipment of close to 100 tons of medical supplies and equipment, the European Union said.
“The European Union continues to support the people of Afghanistan. Today’s Humanitarian Air Bridge flight delivers additional vital medicines and medical items that will benefit the Afghan people. The EU Humanitarian Air Bridge helps the United Nations and humanitarian NGOs to keep operating in the country and represents a lifeline to those in need of medical treatment,” EU Chargé d’Affaires in Afghanistan Raffaella Iodice said.
This is the 27th cargo flight from the EU that has arrived since August 2021 to support the people of Afghanistan.
The EU Humanitarian Air Bridge flight operations are conducted under the European Humanitarian Response Capacity (EHRC). Funded and operated by the EU Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG ECHO), these flights help to fill critical gaps in the EU’s humanitarian and emergency response.
