PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): The process to distribute cooking oil among thousands of flood-affected families kicked off on Wednesday in the central province of Logar, an official said.

A total of 40,000 litres of ghee worth four million afghanis would be distributed among a total of 3,333 families affected by natural disasters in the provincial capital, Pul-i-Alam and the districts, the Afghanistaninfo-icon Natural Disaster Management Authority (ANDMA) head for Logar, Najibullah Naibi, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Each family would be given 12-litre of ghee, he said while launching the aid distribution.

A recipient of the aid in Pul-i-Alam, Syed Habibullah, said the recent floods washed away wheat crop on his 2.5 acres of land. He criticised the government for the meagre assistance.
