GARDEZ (Pajhwok): The Afghan Red Crescent Societyinfo-icon (ARC) on Wednesday distributed food and non-food items among 275 war-affected families in southeastern Paktia province, the society said.

The provincial ARC office said the assistance was given to families who had been displaced by the conflict from Janikhel district. The families had suffered heavy financially losses.

Deputy Governor Abdul Wali Sahmi, who distributed the aid, told Pajhwok Afghan News the assistance included cooking oil, rice, tea, beans, sugar and soap worth three million afghanis.

He thanked the ARC office for the assistance and urged other charities help the Janikhel war-affected families.

Ziarat Gul Khan Mangal, a resident of Janikhel district, said he was happy with the aid.
