Kandahar mayor announces aid for Japan

Kandahar mayor announces aid for Japan

Mar 12, 2011 - 20:49

KANDAHARCITY (PANinfo-icon): The Kandahar mayor on Saturday announced aid for victims of Japan's massive quake and tsunami that killed over 1,000 people and wounded many more.

More than 586 individuals are missing and 1,105 were injured in the double disaster. Nearly 300 bodies were found along the coast in Sendai city. At least 1,300 people may have been killed, one report said.

On behalf of residents of Kandahar City, where the Japan International Cooperation Agency remains active to help Afghans, Mayor Ghulam Haider Hamidi told journalists at the governor's office he would send $50,000 in aid to Tokyo.

Having gone through the trauma of three decades of conflict, Afghans could easily realise the suffering of other nations, said the mayor -- the first Afghan official to announce relief for the technologically advanced country.
