RASC News Agency: In continuation of the global humanitarian response to assist the victims of the devastating earthquake in western Afghanistan, the government of Japan has announced its unwavering commitment to contribute three million dollars to provide support for those affected.
Japan’s emergency aid amounting to three million dollars will be directed through international organizations with the objective of addressing the urgent and immediate needs of the earthquake victims in Herat. This aid encompasses essential provisions such as food, healthcare services, and other necessary requirements crucial for their well-being.
Moreover, Japan has expressed its intent to extend additional assistance worth 1.46 million dollars to the people of Afghanistan through Japanese institutions. This gesture reflects the steadfast dedication of the Japanese government to stand alongside the Afghanistani population and uphold its efforts in enhancing the humanitarian situation within the country.
According to the official announcement, the three million dollars in humanitarian aid will be allocated across three distinct categories. One million dollars will be channeled through the World Food Program to provide essential food assistance. Another million dollars will be directed through the International Organization for Migration to address water and sanitation needs, ensuring hygienic conditions. The remaining million dollars will be entrusted to the International Federation of Red Crescent Society to offer a range of vital services.
It is important to note that despite the fact that Japan’s humanitarian aid for the earthquake victims in Herat province has already reached the country’s airfield and has been handed over to the authorities of the Taliban group, the Japanese government remains dedicated to extending further assistance.
Numerous other nations across the globe have also pledged humanitarian aid to the Afghanistani people, particularly those affected by the earthquake in Herat. Some of this assistance has already been delivered, signifying the global community’s solidarity with Afghanistan in this time of need.
In related news, media reports have highlighted the recent arrival of the first shipment of aid from another country into Afghanistan, further contributing to the support and relief efforts for the affected regions.
