Baghlan Flood Victims Criticize Delay in Assistance

A number of flood victims in Baghlan province criticized the delay in receiving aid.

Those who had been surveyed for receiving aid and have not yet received any assistance asked the caretaker government to seriously address their challenges.

"They surveyed us, but the aid has not yet arrived. They must provide assistance urgently and give us tents; we have children and we don’t have any shelter," Noorullah, a flood victim in Baghlan, told TOLOnews.

"We have been surveyed, but no help has arrived yet. If even a loaf of bread comes as aid, it does not reach the deserving person. People around come and steal," said Ajab Gul, another flood victim from Baghlan province.

Officials from some aid organizations in Baghlan said that the damages caused by these floods are extensive, and the current is insufficient. 
They have asked other humanitarian agencies to rush to help the flood victims of Baghlan.

"Everyone should help these people to the best of their ability and do whatever they can," Mohammad Rafi, an official of an aid organization, told TOLOnews.

"We cannot bear to see this scene; may God help our people. We have helped the people with all that we could," said Mohammad Ibrahim, a tribal elder.

Meanwhile, the spokesperson for the governor of Baghlan, Alam Majidi, said that in addition to distributing aid packages, the caretaker government provides 100,000 afghani in assistance to the families of each deceased victim.

Alam Majidi said: "In a transparent process, and from one side of the committee, 100,000 afghani are distributed to the family of each martyr, meaning if a family has one martyr, they receive 100,000 Afghanis; if they have three martyrs, they receive 300,000 Afghanis."

According to local officials in Baghlan, the operation to search for missing bodies is still ongoing in several districts.
