The World Food Program (WFP) in cooperation with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) provided cash-aid to dozens of vulnerable families in west of Kabul on Monday.
WFP’s zone manager, Daoud Ghaznawi said that each family would receive 7,000 Afs in cash.
“We distribute the aids in two rounds. First, we have provided food materials. Now provide about 76 US dollars to each family,” he said.
The international organization including the UN have warned of severe humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan as the winter is approaching.
The vulnerable families praised the provision of aids, calling on the international organization to ramp up their efforts to help the people who are in grave need.
“I ask the donors to support the hospitals, boot up their donations to overcome the existing poverty,” said Bibi Anisa, who was waiting on the line to receive the aids.
“I called on them to surge the rate of the aids in the future. This will help the people a lot better. This capable us to at least provide burning materials for the winter,” said Safiullah Khan, another aid receiver.
WFP provided donations to at least 9 million Afghans last year. According to the organization, 14 million people would be given aids in the ongoing year. The organization is also planning to provide aid for over 23 million people- that will also cost more than 220 million dollars.
