New Delhi/UNI: In view of the challenging humanitarian situation in Afghanistan, India on Saturday sent a consignment of medical supplies to Kabul by a Kam Air flight.

The consignment was sent by the return flight of the Kam Air which on Friday brought 10 Indians and 94 Afghans to New Delhi from Kabul.

These medicines will be handed over to the representatives of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Kabul and will be administered at the Indira Gandhi Children Hospital, Kabul, an official statement said.

On Friday, a special Kam Air flight from Kabul to New Delhi, chartered by the Government of India, arrived at the IGI airport at New Delhi, bringing 10 Indians and 94 Afghans, including members of the Afghan minority community.

The minority community members carried with them two Swaroops of Guru Granth Sahib and some ancient Hindu manuscripts.

Under "Operation Devi Shakti”, a total of 669 people have now been evacuated from Afghanistan. This comprises 448 Indians and 206 Afghans, which includes members of the Afghan Hindu/Sikh minority community. 565 people including 438 Indians were evacuated from Afghanistan earlier in the month of August 2021.

India is also sending 50,000 MT of wheat to Afghanistan via the Wagah border.
