India has repeatedly expressed its commitment to provide humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.
India is also planning to send foodgrains to Afghanistan very soon.
The fourth batch of medical assistance consisting of three tons of essential life-saving medicines was sent to Afghanistan last month. It was handed over to the Indira Gandhi Hospital, Kabul on January 28.
