FEROZKOH (Pajhwok): Internally displaced families from various districts to the provincial capital of western Ghorinfo-icon province say they are struggling with healthinfo-icon and economic problems.

Some 25,000 families have been displaced to Ghor province from Faryab, Badghis, Helmand, Kunduz and other provinces as a result of clashes in their areas this ongoing year.

Of the families, so far around 1,067 have received food in aid from different welfare organizations.

The newly arrived displaced families are complaining that most of the families have been living under the open skies.

Mir Ahmad, 56, a resident of Badghis said the continuation of fighting between the Talibaninfo-icon and security forces in their province forced them to leave homes.

“The Taliban looted everything we had, they killed our children and left us with no option but to flee homes,” he said.

He said the local government had provided only one tent to each family and still many families lived under the open sky.

A displaced woman, Khal Bibi said: “The Taliban killed our elders and forced us to leave our homes. We are in bad condition and if not assisted, we may die.”

The number of IDPs increased in Ghor province after the Taliban launched assaults on Shahrak, Tolak and Saghar districts, triggering more displacement.
