Distribution of Aid to Victims in Badghis

The relief package sent by the Reform and Partnership Team was distributed to the victims of the recent disasters in Badghis.

On May 8, 2014, the collected supplies were worth about one million and four hundred thousand Afghanis. Our delegation first consulted with the different stakeholders in the province consisting of elders, clergy, tribal authorities, women and youth. Afterwards, with the assistance of some of these groups, our delegation distributed the donated material to the victims in different parts of the province. 

It is worth mentioning that our delegation divided the victims in three categories:

1) The martyrs and mosques,

2) those whose homes were totally destroyed, and

3) those that bore damages. 

The disaster areas where our aid was distributed included Laman, Kandalan, Baghban QarQeetoo, Baghlar, Qades and center of the city of Qalaye Nao. In these areas, for two hundred families we provided food stuff including rice, cooking oil, table salt, chick peas, tomato paste, sugar and green tea.

Also, for the families of the martyrs, in addition to food stuff and clothing some cash was also distributed while cash for the building of three mosques was also provided.

The Reform and Partnership Team as well as the National Coalition of Afghanistan once again extend their appreciation of all those businessmen and philanthropic individuals that participated in this donation drive.
