Some disabled individuals in Kabul are complaining about not receiving their monthly support payments.
Despite the budget for this year being approved, their salaries have not yet been paid.
Abdul Wasi is a disabled person who was injured disabled 30 years ago as a result of a mine explosion in Kabul's Paghman area. He said that not getting paid has compelled him to work in order to support his family.
“We used to have a lot of customers who used to come and have tea. Now a teapot of tea is ten afghanis, and there are no customers,” said Abdul Wasi, a disabled person.
Meanwhile, other disabled people in the country are asking the Islamic Emirate to pay their salaries.
“Three to four times, the human resources called us and re-registered us. We were told that your salary will be paid on Wednesday, but 3 or 4 months have passed since then, they said there is no budget,” said Zalmai, a disabled person.
However, officials from the Ministry of Martyrs and Disabled Affairs said the process of registering and identifying disabled people in the country is incomplete, and their salaries will be paid in the coming days.
“The families of orphans and the disabled are divided into different categories and each category has a different classification,” said Wakil Afghan, the director of finance and administration of the Ministry of Martyrs and Disabled Affairs.
According to the Ministry of Martyrs and Disabled Affairs, 104,000 disabled people are presently registered with the ministry, whereas the previous government registered 450,000 people.
