Pakistan donated a planeload of wheat to Afghanistan last week to help mitigate the food shortage in the country.

The donation was made on special instructions of the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as a gesture of goodwill and solidarity with the people and government of Afghanistan, according to a statement issued by the Foreign Office on Tuesday.

Pakistan’s ambassador to Kabul handed over the donation to Afghan Deputy Minister/Deputy Chairman of the Afghan National Disaster Management Authority (ANDMA), Aslam Sayas, at Kabul Airport in the presence of other Afghan officials.

The Afghan officials thanked the government of Pakistan for the generous donation.

Earlier in February this year, Pakistan had sent relief assistance for the victims of avalanches in Afghanistan. The goods included tents, blankets, bottled water, stoves and foodstuff.

On February 26, avalanches triggered by heavy snow killed more than 100 people in mountainous areas of northern Afghanistan, officials said as rescuers battled to save dozens more trapped in the snow.
