JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Different charity organizations on Thursday disbursed cash and food assistance among bereaved families of those killed in Jalalabad massacre in eastern Nangarhar province.

The organizations divided each affected family with edible items worth $100 while two of the families were supported with 20,000 afs cash money.

Baz Mohammad Abid, director of Baz Charity Foundation, told Pajhwok Afghan News edible items included flour, edible oil, beans and other stuff. “We collected 270,000 afs from people to support the affected families. We bought edible items with the money and distributed among them,” he added.
