India extends hand to help Afghanistan, sends 500,000 doses of Covaxin

New Delhi: India has today sent the next consignment of humanitarian aid containing 500,000 doses of the corona vaccine Covaxin to Afghanistan. This consignment of the vaccine has been handed over to Indira Gandhi Hospital Kabul. The Indian Ministry of External Affairs has given information in this regard.

In the release of the Ministry of External Affairs, it has been said that in the coming days, additional five lakh doses will be supplied. India has committed to provide humanitarian aid including food grains, one million doses of corona vaccine and essential life-saving medicines to the Afghan people. Earlier last month, India has also sent 1.6 tonnes of medical aid to Afghanistan through the World Health Organization (WHO). The Ministry of External Affairs said that in the coming week, we will work on the supply of wheat and the remaining medical assistance. In this regard, we are in touch with the agencies of the United Nations and others to finalize the mode of transportation.

The terrorist organization Taliban captured Kabul on August 15 and since then the country is facing a deepening economic, humanitarian and security crisis. The combination of suspension of foreign aid, confiscation of Afghan government assets and international sanctions on the Taliban has pushed the country, already suffering from high poverty levels, into a full-blown economic crisis.
