The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has kicked off the distribution of aid to at least 47,400 vulnerable families in Afghanistan.
Head of the OIC office in Kabul, Muhammad Saeed Al-Ayash, said the aid would reach at least 280,000 people in 25 provinces of the country.
“This project includes 47,400 food packages. Every package is 62 kilograms and includes flour, rice, oil, date, ben and sugar that will be distributed to families in need,” he said.
The acting head of the Afghan Red Crescent Society, Matiullahaq Khalis, said that the aid will be provided to vulnerable people and those who deserve it across the country.
“We will distribute to everyone equally, no matter where they live or what language they speak,” he said.
A number of vulnerable families welcomed the move by the OIC.
“We hope they continue their aid to all parts of Afghanistan,” said a resident of Kabul.
“All people of Afghanistan have been struggling with economic problems. I also face it. There is no work,” said a resident of Kabul.
Earlier, many residents of Kabul expressed their concerns about the aid distribution process not being transparent. They call on aid organizations to pay attention to the issue.
