SHARNA/ASADABAD (PANinfo-icon): Food aid was distributed to hundreds of poor families in Paktika and Kunar province on Monday, officials said.

Each needy family received 90 kilograms of eatables, the Afghan Red Crescent Societyinfo-icon (ARCS) head for Kunar, Muhammad Nadir Jabbarkhel, told Pajhwok Afghan News at the distribution ceremony.
