Dozens of quake-affected families provided with residential units in Paktika

SHARANA: At least 60 quakes-affected families have been provided with shelters in the country’s eastern province of Paktika, the Afghan Red Crescent Society (ARCS) said in a statement the other day. “The houses have been equipped with new beds, floors, utensils, solar power systems, food items, and other accessories provided by ARCS, in Tashniki and Shiro Ragha areas of Gyan District of the Province,” the statement said, handing over to families affected by last year’s powerful earthquake, which destroyed their houses. General Director of the ARCS Mawlavi Matiulhaq Khalis said the impact of the earthquake in Paktika and Khost surpassed regional boundaries, affecting both Afghans and the international community, according to the statement. “After the earthquake, we arrived in the region and committed to constructing residential units for the families affected by the disaster. Our assistance continues, and we are dedicated to their ongoing support,” the statement quoted Khalis as saying. He added that up to now, 583 families in Gyan district have received cash aid exceeding 200,000 Afghani per household to repair their earthquake-damaged homes. The Kabul Times
