Before this, the European Union had also announced 3.5 million euros in aid for urgently relieving earthquake victims in Herat province.
Last Saturday, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck Herat province, resulting in thousands of casualties and significant financial losses.
Reports indicate that most of the casualties from this natural disaster are women and children needing immediate assistance, including healthcare and hygiene support.
