A committee was formed to provide the transparent distribution of aid to people affected by recent natural disasters across Afghanistan, said the State Ministry of Disaster Management.
This comes as Pakistan provided more than 300 tons of relief supplies to the earthquake-affected people in Paktika province.
“Pakistan’s assistance to earthquake victims in Khost and Paktika is continuing on a daily basis. Today, another 30 trucks carrying relief goods entered Afghanistan through Ghulam Khan border crossing,” said Mohammad Sadeq, Pakistan's special envoy for Afghanistan.
The Pakistan Ambassador Mansour Ahmad Khan said that 54 tons of food items and other relief goods provided by the Al-Khidmat Foundation Khyber Pakhtunkhwa arrived at the Angoor Adda crossing, and they are intended to help the earthquake-affected people in Afghanistan.
“A center was formed, and the center includes many teams. The teams are comprised of employees from the State Ministry of Disaster Management,” said Mohammad Naseem Haqqani, a spokesman for the State Ministry for Disaster Management.
Meanwhile, the citizens complained about the lack of transparency in aid distribution.
“The winter is coming, we want our houses to be built. The tent could not be used in the winter,’ said Faqeer, a resident of Paktika province.
“Our house was destroyed. We don’t have the capacity to rebuild it, we call on the international community and Islamic Emirate to help us build our houses,” said Qadeer, a resident of Paktika.
