Irfanullah Sharafzoi, the spokesperson of the Afghan Red Crescent Society said that of far aid has been distributed to some 500 vulnerable families in Kabul the capital city. According to the OIC representative, each aid package is 62 Kilograms and includes flour, rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil and dates.
“We wholeheartedly thank the OIC and affiliate international aid organizations for assisting the Afghan people during these difficult times. Our lives greatly depend on the delivery of such essential humanitarian aids,” said a Kabul resident.
Since the overthrow of the previous government by the Taliban in August 2021, Afghanistan is going through major challenges including a dire economic situation, extreme poverty, hunger, unemployment, energy, and humanitarian crisis.
The war-torn country needs immediate humanitarian aid during these difficult economic times. Thousands of families are on the verge of losing their lives due to the extreme weather conditions throughout the country.
Following, the recent bans restricting Afghan women and girls to attend educational institutions and workplaces, aid delivery had been slowed down, which adversely affected the living conditions of needy families across the country.
With the resumption of aid distribution in different parts of the country, the concerns of vulnerable families can be mitigated to some extent to fight the extreme cold and hunger, and be optimistic for a better future.
