PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): A Pakistani welfare organisation has sent seven truckloads of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan.
The aid would be distributed to the needy people in different parts of the war-ravaged country, Bismillah Welfare Trust (BWT) announced on Wednesday.
BWT Chairman Zarbullah Shinwari said they had donated seven truckloads of food items, blankets and winter supplies to Afghanistan as a goodwill gesture.
