Trader assists above 2,000 needy families
KABUL (Pajhwok): A businessman distributed relief goods to more than 2,000 needy families, including 500 teachers, in the capital Kabul on Wednesday.
The aid was distributed by the Kabul Servants Society (KSS), which has registered the needy families.
The businessperson, Mohammad Asif Hasham, told reporters each family received four kilograms of pea, four kilograms of beans, five kilograms of ghee and 24 kilograms of rice.
Each package for a family cost 3,000 afghanis, he said, adding he had been helping poor families for the past 15 years and intended to continue his charity program.
KSS director Mohammad Amin Farhang appreciated Hasham and urged other traders to help deserving families as the holy month of Ramadan was approaching.
He said the KSS was founded in late 2014 and this was its first major contribution to the needy people. The civil society group is supported by traders and senior government officials.
Sifatullah, who received the aid, said, “I thank the aid providers. I am really happy today, I wish such people provide more aid in future to poor families.”
