Afghan authorities have distributed humanitarian aid provided by China and the United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF, to needy families in the country’s central Bamyan province.
An official on Monday said each family received a bag of 50 kg rice and 50 kg wheat provided by China and a pocket of soap and a health kit assisted by the UNICEF.
Mawlawi Shakir Tahir, Provincial Director for Natural Disaster Management and Humanitarian Affairs appreciated China and the UNICEF for sending humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan at a critical stage where a majority of Afghans are suffering from poverty.
Tahir said the joint assistance has been distributed to 446 families in four districts.
Welcoming the humanitarian aid, a recipient Rajab Moahid told Xinhua, “We do thank both the UNICEF and China for helping us in such a critical situation.”
China has supported Afghanistan over the past year with COVID-19 vaccines, winter clothes, tents, and foodstuff, which had been distributed among poor and flood-affected families in the South Asian country.
