China-donated aids distributed to needy families in Kabul

KABUL: The country’s Ministry of Refugees and Repatriates distributed China-donated humanitarian aids to 1,100 households in the capital Kabul, here on Wednesday, an official said.
“This is part of the Chinese government’s humanitarian assistances to be distributed to a total of 1,100 households, including Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs), needy families and people affected by natural disaster, particularly the latest heavy rainfalls and floods,” Mufti Habibullah, a senior official to the ministry told media.
According to the official, each family received 50 kg bag of wheat, donated by the Chinese government.
A Kabul resident, Abdul Fattah who has lost his job, following the recent regime change, thanked China for the aids.
“We have serious economic problem. I have no job and no food, we have at home. The aid, we received now, is enough for 15 days,” Fattah who is the breadwinner of five-family members, told media.
Another Kabul resident, Mohammad Farooq who owns an 8-member family thanked Chinese government for providing the aids and said the country had done much for the Afghan people in the past.
“I received a 50kg bag of wheat donated by China. China has provided much assistance for the people of Afghanistan over last one year,” Farooq who is disabled in one of his legs said.
After the withdrawal of the U.S.-led forces in mid-August last year, the war-torn Afghanistan has been facing extreme economic problem.
In addition, U.S. blocked over 9.5 billion U.S. dollars in the Afghan central bank’s asset; a move further worsened the country’s fragile economy.
Also, in Afghanistan’s northern Samangan province, the People Republic of China distributed humanitarian aids to 400 needy families.
The aids, according to Wali Mohammad Stanezai, an official from the provincial office for the natural disaster management, the aids included a 50kg sock of rice and four kg sugar for each family in Aybak, the provincial capital city of Samangan province.
Last month, the UNHCR has distributed humanitarian aids to up to 24,500 households in the province. The Kabul Times
