AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: Internally displaced people (IDPs) in Kunduz province continue to live in dire conditions, Radio Azadi reported.
Recent wars and conflicts in different districts of the province forced thousands of families to leave their homes and move to the capital city of the province and other safe areas.
The IDPs said that they are currently livening in very bad conditions. They added that if the government cannot provide them support, it should at least clear their areas from the presence of the Taliban militants.
Tabasom, an IDP from Dasht-e-Archi district, said that they are facing many problems due to lack of foods and other facilities during this sacred month of Ramadan.
“Wars and conflicts forced us to leave our village and now we don’t have anything to eat during this holly month. If the government cannot provide us support, it should at least clear our areas form the presence of the Taliban militants,” said Saifuddin, a displaced person from Chardara district.
Abdul Salam Hashimi, the provincial Director of Refugees and Repatriation Affairs, said that around 18,000 displaced families have applied for assistance in the province. “After a survey, we found out that out of the above mentioned people only 4,000 families were eligible to receive support,” he added. Hashimi said that some charity organizations have provided aid to the eligible families.
