More than 100 IDP families get cash, food in aid

More than 100 IDP families get cash, food in aid

Jan 15, 2018 - 17:21

PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): At least 100 internally-displaced people (IDPs) have received cash and food aid in central Logar province, an official said on Monday.

The assistance had been providing by the World Food Program (WFP) to those who were recently displaced by war, said Director of Refugees and Repatriation Noor Ahmad Salihi.

He added around 3,500 families had been displaced in the province but assistance was provided for 800 families. Each family was given 200 dollars and some household appliances.

He added: “The families left out will also receive aid,” he promised.

Mirwais, 50, a resident of Kamalkhel and a beneficiary, said they had left their area six months back. They were in acute need of essential food items and other materials.

Ahmad Shah, another resident of Barak-i-Barak district, said they had been driven from home by war. Nine months after they complained to the department, they were delivered aid.

Last year, a number of families from Barak-i-Barak, Charkh, Azra and Mohammad Agha districts were displaced by conflict.
