KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): India will dispatch a consignment of 75,000 metric tonnes of wheat to Afghanistaninfo-icon in November as part of its humanitarian gesture.

The consignment will be sent via the Chabahar port and the supply will commence from Kandala port next month.

India sent a consignment via Chabahar in 2017 when they started the supply of 1.1 million tonnes of wheat to Afghanistan.

The 2017 consignment also paved the way for operationalisation of the Chabahar port as a reliable way of connectivity for Afghanistan.

India is also providing financial assistance for the treatment of Afghan children suffering from congenital heart disease.

According to Indian Ambassador Vinay Kumar, in the last four years, around 2000 Afghan children in the age group of 4 months to 18 years have been treated with India’s assistance of $4 million.

On the 37th anniversary of the Afghan Red Crescent Societyinfo-icon (SRCS), Vinay Kumar spoke about the financial assistance being provided by New Delhi for the treatment of Afghan children suffering from congenital heart disease.

He also commended the "outstanding work of ARCS and its volunteers in providing humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan affected by the conflict and natural disasters.

From infrastructure to humanitarian aid to building institutions, India is engaging with Afghanistan according to the country's development priorities. 

New Delhi has just completed replacements for all four Mi 24V helicopters it had given to Afghanistan in 2015/2016.

While two helicopters were given earlier this year, the remaining two were handed over to Afghan forces on Tuesday.
