At least 57 people were killed and 72 were wounded in recent flooding across Afghanistan, the State Ministry of Disaster Management said.
A spokesman for the ministry said that they have provided food and other supplies to the people affected by the floods.
The floods also affected a large portion of farmland.
“Our teams have distributed essential aid to the people affected by the floods. Those who do not have shelter have been provided with tents, food and other materials. The damages are high and thus a lot of funding is required,” said Mohammad Naseem Haqqani, a spokesman for the State Ministry for Disaster Management.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock said that the Afghan farmers have suffered heavy financial losses due to recent floods.
“In many provinces of the country, where the heavy rains happened, the floods occurred and affected agriculture lands, canals and gardens,” said Musbahuddin Mustaeen, a spokesman for the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock.
Meanwhile, the farmers said that they have suffered financial losses and that their crops have been destroyed.

“Due to fatal floods and storms, one citizen was killed, and one other was wounded. Heavy financial loss has resulted,” said Shafiullah, a resident of Nangarhar province.
