The Ministry of Martyrs and Disabled Affairs said monthly support payments for disabled people and families of martyrs will resume following a recheck in two months.
"Our main problem is that the majority of orphans and disabled people do not have electronic identity cards and bank accounts, but despite this, our colleagues are working to finish this process as soon as possible," said Mufti Faisal, head of the press department of the Ministry of Martyrs and Disabled Affairs.
Meanwhile, some disabled people and their families in Kabul said that they are facing economic challenges and asked the Islamic Emirate to pay their monthly support payments.
“We filled the form in the winter, but still there is no news of the salary,” Saleh Mohammad, a disabled person, told TOLOnews.
“We are facing economic challenges, every day I have to collect 100 Afs for my house rent,” Zabiullah, a disabled person, told TOLOnews.
“They should pay our salaries, eight orphans have been left to me,” said a family member of a disabled person.
Previously, the families of disabled people have complained about not receiving their monthly support payments, but the Ministry of Martyrs and the Disabled said that the recheck of the disabled and the families of the martyrs is one of the main reasons for the delay in paying their salaries.
