ASAD ABAD (PAN): The distribution of World Food Programme-donated wheat to needy families started in eastern Kunar province, officials said on Saturday.
The recipients included orphans and widows from Ghaziabad, Narai, Chapa Dara, Shegal and Asmar districts, Governor Syed Fazlullah Wahidi told Pajhwok Afghan News.
As many as 1,750 families would receive aid in each district. A three-member delegation, led by a district chief, has been formed in each town to oversee the ongoing distribution of aid.
