Ministry: Displaced Families in Kabul to Return to Home Provinces

The Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation has begun the process of returning displaced families from the capital Kabul to their home provinces, the ministry said.  

The ministry put the number of known displaced families in Kabul at around 2,000, saying the families will be returned to their homes and provided aid. 

Families left their homes during fighting that preceded the fall of Kabul in August.

The deputy minister of refugees and repatriation, Arsalan Kharotai, said "this process began today and will continue, thus all (displaced) families in Kabul will go back to their provinces."   

According to officials, the evacuation process is being done in cooperation with donor organizations.  

This comes as hundreds of displaced families are currently living in open areas or in tents in several parts of Kabul. Their situation has become more dire as winter approaches. 

A resident of Baghlan named Mihruddin, who is disabled because he is missing a foot, said: “I haven’t received any aid. The little aid that is provided ... the able-bodied take it.” 

Another displaced Kunduz resident, Abdul Baseer, said "we have a demand to immediately move the people, the people have become sick, it has been over a month that we are here” 

The World Food Program said that Afghanistan is scrambling with severe economic conditions and warned of an economic crisis in within coming weeks in Afghanistan.  

“The economy is on the brink of collapse here in Afghanistan,” said Mary-Ellen McGroarty, WFP representative and country director for Afghanistan. ”There is a cash crisis. Banks had closed their doors, but they are now opened. You can only take out 200 dollars. Savings are inaccessible for the people that have a little bit of money in the bank. The Afghan currency has decreased significantly.”   

Although some countries and donor organizations have provided humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, a large of number of people remain in need of support.
