Free distribution of bread to the poor begins in Kabul

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Free distribution of bread to the poor and needy has begun in Kabul, where the coronavirus lockdown has led to unemployment among residents, says an official.

In the first phase of the project, the Kabul Municipality said, 250,000 needy families in the capital would be given 10 free pieces of bread daily.

Mayor Mohammad Dawood Sultanzoy said the main objective behind the initiative was to meet the basic need of those worst hit by the lockdown.

He added bakeries having the capacity to distribute bread to the deserving people had been selected based on their compliance with healthinfo-icon guidelines.

The bread distribution project will also be implemented in coronavirus-affected capitals of Herat, Balkh, Kandahar, Kunduz and Nangarhar.
