A Week After Devastation: Murghab District Still Awaits Relief

A number of residents from the flood-stricken Murghab district in Ghor say that a week after the devastating floods, they have still received no assistance.

Flood victims add that they have lost their homes and all their possessions, and they have no bread to eat.

Mohammad Zaman, a resident of Murghab district, Ghor, said: "We people are perishing, we have no way out, no bread, no water, and no shelter. If no help comes our way, we will perish."

Abdul Jalil, another resident of Murghab district, said: "We are dying of hunger, we have no place and nothing to eat."

Meanwhile, health officials in Murghab district report that following the floods, due to the lack of clean drinking water, diseases such as pneumonia and diarrhea have spread among children.

Mohammad Taher, head of the clinic in Murghab district, said: "The floods that occurred in Murghab district have increased respiratory illnesses and diarrhea."

Local officials in Murghab district say that the lack of clean drinking water and food threatens the lives of the flood-affected citizens.

Mir Aqa Musleh, deputy district governor of Murghab, said: "The problem with the areas that have been damaged is that the water from the Murghab river is contaminated, and there is no access to clean water, nor is there sufficient food."

Abdul Basir Yazdanpanah, a civil society activist, said: "People are still displaced; they have lost their homes, land, and livestock. They have no bread to eat, no clean water, and no shelter."

In recent days, several districts in Ghor, including Murghab and Charsada, have witnessed deadly and destructive floods.

According to local authorities in Ghor, the floods have claimed seven lives and nearly 600 homes have been destroyed, along with 7,000 jeribs (approximately 1,400 hectares) of agricultural land, dozens of shops, and several water channels.
