Farah/IBNS: Afghan authorities distributed China-donated assistance to 213 needy families in the western Farah province on Thursday, financial and administrative head of the province Samihullah Tawakali said Friday.

“After conducting a survey and identifying needy families, we distributed the aid to 213 families and each family received 25 kg of rice, a packet of beans, 10 packets of macaroni and jam,” Tawakali said.

The provincial government received 3,400 bags of rice with each weighing 50 kg from China-donated assistance and would distribute them to impoverished families in Farah province, the official said, adding that 2,800 families have benefited from the aid over the past year.

“I am thankful to China and the assistance we received could solve our problems to some extent,” aid recipient Akhtar Mohammad told Xinhua.

Over the past year, China has been also providing other humanitarian assistance materials, including COVID-19 vaccines, winter clothes, foodstuff and tents to needy Afghan families.
