Aid Not Distributed Fairly, Say Kabul Residents

Aid Not Distributed Fairly, Say Kabul Residents

Residents of Kabul complained of the “unfair distribution” of aid, saying that the aid was not provided to the vulnerable people who need it.  

They also called for a transparent and fair distribution of aid.  

“Let the aid be continued. But it should be given to people who deserve it,” said Ghulam Nabi, a resident of Kabul.  

“No one has given us anything,” said Abdul Muttalib, another resident of Kabul.  

“When we ask for aid—they tell us to wait, but I haven’t received anything yet,” said Rahim, another resident.  

The World Food Program (WFP) said that it has provided food and cash aid to 15 million people in 2021 in Afghanistan.  

The WFP expects to reach over 23 million vulnerable people next year in Afghanistan.  

“There should be a home-to-home survey so we can address the problem of those who are in grave need,” said Wahidullah Amani, a spokesman for the WFP.  

How effective is the humanitarian aid distribution in Afghanistan?  

Economists gave their opinions:  

“The education departments, particularly teachers, can help the United Nations in the distribution of aid,” said Sayed Masoud, an economist.  

The Ministry of Refugee and Repatriation denied the existence of corruption in the provision of aid to the people in need.  

“Those who deserve to be helped, we give them (humanitarian organizations) information to send assistance there,” said Abdul Muttalib Haqqani, spokesman for the ministry. 

Based on international humanitarian organizations’ statistics, over 92 percent of Afghans are struggling with food insecurity.
