Taliban offers 934 Afghan families $143 each in cash assistance
A total of 934 families received cash assistance in two Afghan provinces on Sunday, the authorities said on Monday.
In the northern Sari Pul province, 334 natural disaster-affected families received 12,600 afghani (U.S. $143) for each, the Office of the State Minister for Disaster Management and Humanitarian Affairs, said in a statement.
The ministry said the provincial disaster management officials distributed 8,100 afghani to 600 destitute families each in the eastern Nangarhar province.
“Two international humanitarian agencies supported the ministry in the provision and distribution of the assistance,” the ministry’s statement said.
According to the statement, the families are identified by surveys jointly conducted by the provincial officials and members of the aid agencies.
The aid agencies reported that more than 22 million Afghans out of some 35 million of the country’s population are facing acute food shortage.
The aid agencies worry that the country would face humanitarian catastrophe if not assisted.
